About The Artist:
Martin Squires has an obsession with motor powered transport. Be it anything from a humble New Hudson Autocycle right up to an Aero Powered Bentley Special and anything in between.
This obsession started through a family connection with Morgan Three Wheelers and various British Motorcycles: Matchless, AJS, Brough Superior to name a few. Combining this obsession with a natural talent for painting Martin has developed a distinctive style which evokes motoring days gone by. Inspired by vintage photographs with overexposed and high contrast imagery Martin uses a variety of mediums to capture the pioneers and enthusiasts of the past and present.
As well as illustrating various modes of transport Martin takes an active interest in his various subjects using each piece as a chance to find out more about motoring history. Having the opportunity to talk to enthusiasts and occasionally get the chance to see their collections is just as important to Martin as producing a piece of art as it gives him an opportunity to understand his subject, allowing him to produce accurate and pertinent tribute to every subject he paints.
Martin regularly reports on various motoring events via his website. His reports utilise sketches that are done during the event to illustrate his articles giving a unique view on the event. Martin also exhibits at various motoring events throughout the UK and Europe as well as exhibiting internationally.
Prints of all of Martins artwork are available to order, or if you are interested commissioning an original piece from Martin feel free to contact him.
