No.5 – Grayson Perry Portrait Painting
After hearing some of the Grayson Perry Shows and hugely inspiring Reith lectures about art plus seeing Grayson Perry on Art Club on Chanel 4 I thought it’d be cool to immortalise him on a 1st class postage stamp forever, based on a publicity shot by R Ansett.

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.
