My work mainly consists of faces, repetitive shapes, and line drawings. The faces tend to appear deep and vacant, which suits the deep, earthy color schemes that I prefer to work with. I enjoy working with the one-line drawing technique as there is no right or wrong way to do this, and often the mistakes or imperfections become the most appealing part of the drawing.

About Angus Martin
I draw a lot of inspiration from music – I always listen to music when painting. Music can resurface a lot of memories, and if I am drawn to a specific lyric or tune, I’m transported to a particular time or place. I’ll listen to a song on repeat whilst painting a piece to focus on that specific memory, be it, good or bad. Most of my work focuses on relationships and the feelings and experiences that follow.
There is also a great book I read a few years ago which I often revisit called ‘The power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking’, which provides insights into the way introverts behave and reasoning as to why people are introverts. Working in a fast paced industry, I’m often forced to be extroverted, and this is where the inspiration from my more complex pieces tends to come from, as I find painting is a good way to re-energize and silence my mind.
