Martin Reid

Featured on Sky Arts Landscape artist of the year and widely talked about as one of Britain’s most exciting emerging artists, Martin Reid has perfected two very unique styles of painting. The first uses a charcoal dry brushing technique using traditional Chinese brushes. He first started experimenting with the method whilst living in South-East Asia for a few years and mainly uses it to produce stunning hyper-realist animal and human portraits that are often mistaken for photographs. Each piece in his latest collection entitled “Strength from Within” carries significant meaning and were produced to provide inspiration both through periods of struggle and times of prosperity. 

His second style is a technique he has developed himself using oil on the back of glass. He was featured on Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year and received praise from the judges on the vibrancy of the colours that this method produces in the finished product. Martin has a diverse background and with four children, who also share his passion for painting, has a full life. 

“Painting has always been a great passion and I love to see people’s reactions to my labours of love. I look forward to meeting everyone at the roadshow Martin Reid Displayand giving some demonstrations of my techniques”.

Thinking about a commission? Martin Just has a few limited slots each year which he fits in around his exhibitions; but due to the personal nature and what the paintings mean to the collectors, it’s what he loves to do best.
