Highly methodical in his approach, Martin will carefully choose a photographic reference or an arranged still-life, before selecting his highly refined palette. His works combine tonal nuance and mysterious forms. Signs, symbols, human figures, animals and inanimate objects all become transformed: recognisable yet veiled. Attending Arts Project Australia since 1988, Martin has developed a distinctive artistic style that has met with wide critical acclaim. In 1994 Martin was a finalist in the prestigious Moët & Chandon Travelling Fellowship, and has since been included in major art events and prizes both in Australia and overseas.

Arts Project Australia has been promoting the work of artists with an intellectual disability since 1974, with the aim to promote and exhibit their work as belonging to the broad spectrum of contemporary art.
