About Martin Studios Fine Art
Layers of rich, earthy colors and diverse textures characterize my work. Both visual and tactile textures are inspiring to me, and therefore very prominent in the art I create. I strive to add a sense of visual depth by using layers of handmade papers, metallic foils, photographs, natural materials, and texture mediums.
In 1997, Denver based artist and picture framer Bryan Martin glimpsed a market for original art using trendy palettes and unique mediums. He took an idea and put it on canvas. The canvas hung on the wall of a design studio for a mere day before selling, and thus Martin Studios was founded.
After its inception, Martin Studios found a niche in local design circles. Before long, the circles grew wider as Bryan formed liaisons with nation-wide art representatives. He continues to expand Martin Studios by regularly attending several of the national art and design expos in which he is represented, including the New York Art Expo, and the Atlanta Arts Expo.
Locally, Bryan is involved in several art associations in Northern Colorado where he currently resides, and he regularly submits his art to shows and juried exhibitions.
Although original art remains the primary focus for Martin Studios, Bryan is quickly becoming known for his stylish and innovative work through reproductions. In 2002, Haddad’s Fine Arts first began publishing Bryan’s work. Now, Bryan’s art is carried across America in fine retail outlets such as Target, Kohl’s, Z Gallery, Linens N Things, and Bed Bath and Beyond.
Bryan has been featured in an article in Décor magazine, where he was demarcated as one of a type of “artists that stand out for their distinct style and subject matter”, and as having “’a good sense of what’s right for the market’".
