The miraculous process
Martin Allen is a London based artist. Martin came to oil painting through a circuitous route, having drawn for most of his life and being largely self-taught he was eventually re-introduced to oil painting as a preferred medium to create his varied and diverse work – this proved to be a ‘lightbulb’ moment.
The methods he uses to paint are classic ones, using layered paint applications rounded off by oil glazes. These create, add depth and harmonise colours.
He has shown solo numerous times at The Affordable Art Show London, Fresh Art Fairs, Goodwood, Roys Art Fair, The Erotic Art and others, been a finalist at the ‘London art Biennale 2019’, been published in Vogue magazine, Motorsport Magazine alongside various commissions including work for the BP Shipping collection.
