Eros the God of Love
Eros the God of love
Picaddilly Circus, London, just after a heavy downpour as the winter night comes in is a great piece of London artwork. The second in a series of enigmatic London in the rain impressionist canvases, capturing light, warm colours, reflections and Londoners rushing to their destinations at the end of the day.
About the artist
Martin Allen is a London based emerging 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. 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 Goodwood, The Affordable Art Fair and others, been a finalist at the ‘London art Biennale 2019’, alongside various commissions including work for the BP Shipping collection.
Martins’ work was also shown in the ‘Soho Scandalous’ exhibition at Blacks Club in London along with the The London Fashion Show with Runway-Gallery.
