Martin Brown

 

presented by FRED London Ltd

 

 

Born 1971 born in Canberra, Australia

 

 

Martin Brown’s work is based on observation, that of the city in which he lives, and the history of painting. His concern is the architectural idiosyncrasies in the urban environment - the interaction of the old and new. Since moving to London in 2003, he has found some inspiration in seventeenth-century Dutch painters, who began to remove painting from religious and mythological frameworks and concentrate on radical depictions of everyday people and social situations from many different walks of life.

 

He has shown widely in his native Australia, and been included in exhibitions here, in Russia and China. He is represented in collections in Australia and the UK. He lives and works in London.
