Daniel Martin

The work of Daniel Martin is characterized by the quick and powerful strokes interwoven with finely painted elements. Inspired by artists like Kline and Pollock, he uses his whole body to apply fluent brushstrokes to the canvas. Through this abstract expressionistic painting method, he creates room to intensify every delicate detail.

Daniel Martin: ‘Mistakes are the building blocks of my paintings. The uncontrolled style of brushwork I use is absolutely forgivable, and I exploit this to its full extent. Every mistake or wrongly applied brushstroke enables me to see the painting with a fresh eye and reshape it into something better.’

Daniel Martin’s paintings present us with a mysterious image of the hectic pace of every day life. The fragmented faces and bodies offer insight into the volatile life of modern man – one that still very seldom reveals its secrets.
