Art; Donald Martiny

I instantly fell in love with the work of Donald Martiny, upon coming across his work online while scrolling through some of my favourite tumblr’s and websites. I love how he has taken something so practical and overlooked, being the simple stroke of a brush and turned it into it’s own being and work of art, the simple curves and twists that the brushes make evoke emotion and play with light without having to do anything…. As you can imagine a Martiny piece does not come cheap with the general range starting at about £17,000 to upwards….

“Donald Martiny’s work forces us to question the established definitions which form the backbone of our understanding of painting as both a pursuit and a product, and of paint as a medium. In challenging the viewer in these ways, it is not only visually exciting but intellectually invigorating.”

Professor Deborah Swallow, Märit Rausing Director, The Courtauld Institute of Art
