Martin Roberts is an emerging textile / mixed media artist.

Coming from a background in costume and fashion, Martin has taken techniques and ideas from these disciplines and evolved them into a more contemporary visual context. His artwork is a mix of illustrative and abstract textile imagery with inspiration coming from a personal story of the people, places and events in his own life. Layers of fabric and paint are built up creating large collages of shape, colour and texture.

Born and raised in Dublin Ireland, Martin went to art college in Limerick specialising in Fashion design. Upon graduating he worked for many years in fashion and costume. His artwork is a continuation of his work with textiles. In 2002 he moved to Australia where he now lives and works from his studio in Sydney.
