   Robert Martin - Artist's profile  - www.robertmartinart.com.au  Artist's website.
Born in Brisbane in 1947, Robert Martin has had a passionate attachment to painting since childhood. His career started at the tender age of fifteen when he was drawn into the hard-edged world of Advertising as a trainee illustrator/designer. Serving his early years as a freelance artist, junior art director, he took the bold step of starting his own Ad Agency, Robert Martin Advertising, at the surprisingly young age of twenty-five.

His agency went on to operate successfully for over thirty years, yet throughout its history, Robert never lost his lust for the smell of oils and the challenge of a blank canvas. As well as being the agency's principal, he held the position of Creative Director and always maintained a "hands on" approach to the agency's creative direction with the help of a team of very talented and capable people.

Now retired from business, Robert has made room in his life for his love of painting and to fulfill his creative appetite, he has been honing his talent and technique in many workshops conducted by successfully established artists of repute.

Now with five solo Exhibitions, Robert's themes have been drawn from his long-standing love affair with the sun, sand and sea. His coastal lifestyle subjects have evoked an enthusiastic response from people viewing his first works displayed. His figurative works have also been recognized with recent first art prize awards.

A trip to France in September 2004 has provided Robert with a broad scope of new subjects and an opportunity to experiment with a new execution of style. This series was a collection of strikingly diverse images including figure studies. This successful exhibition was held in September 2005.

Paintings are featured in leading art galleries & private collections extensively in Australia, San Francisco, New York and Oklahoma.

After traveling to Italy in April/May 2006, Robert has prepared a series of images depicting the unique lifestyle and architectural treasures of a captivating landscape.
