Graham Martin

Graham Martin is interested in architecture and urban spaces, in particular the social housing and iconic tower

blocks built throughout London, Glasgow and more widely the UK in the 60's and 70's. His

paintings, drawings and prints document these buildings, the surrounding urban environments and

our interaction with them. His focus for the past two years has been the rapidly changing

landscape of East London and more recently he has been working on a series of paintings,

drawings and prints of the Red Road flats in Glasgow, the remaining blocks of which are

earmarked for demolition in 2016. He works principally in acrylics, building up layers of paint in order

to achieve a level of luminosity and transparency. Working from photos and drawings he attempts

to accurately represent the subject he is painting whilst incorporating areas of abstraction in his

work.   One of his works from the Red Road series has been accepted at this year's Columbia Threadneedle Art Prize show which opens at the Mall Galleries on 3rd February 2016.
