Martin Grant

Hi my name is Martin Grant, I grew up in the West End of Newcastle but have spent quite a bit of my life living in the south especially on the south coast. Now I have returned to my birth place.

I have illustrated for Parragon Books and at the moment I’m working on my own children’s book – A Fruitful Wish
I studied fine art at the College of Art and technology in Newcastle where my interest in abstract and cubism art found its way into my illustrations.

My work on display is big bright and bold, I paint using basic poster paint which I mix myself to get the right consistency then I apply it in layers after each layer has dried, this gives the art a flat bold look.

I hope these bright bold retro looking, fun paintings bring a smile upon your face as they do mine.
