Angus Martin is a Sydney based artist whose paintings are inspired by music, lyrics, quotes and poetry. Angus listens to music while painting, sometimes playing a song on repeat in order to be transported to a specific memory while painting. Bringing a simple approach to figurative art, his work aims to initiate a personal connection that people can resonate with from their own experiences. After studying graphic design, Angus was awarded the South Australian Arts Excellence Award.
With a focus on the psychology behind colours, Angus balances overlapping contrasting shades to strengthen the impact of his work and evoke emotions from his audience. Each piece of work is highly symbolic, harmonious and unexpectedly emotional as every piece holds deep meaning and hidden positive affirmations that act as daily reminders to the viewer.
