George Martin PJ
Speaking In Tongues
Acrylic on canvas
48 × 48 inches
The first recipient of Art India Magazine’s Promising Artist Award in 2005, George Martin was born in Kerala in 1973. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Sculpture from the College of Fine Arts, Thiruvanthapuram in 1998, and his Master’s degree in the same from the Government College of Art and Craft, Kolkata, in 2001.
George Martin’s works are a spectral of luscious colour. He paints a magical view of the world around us, which appears to be spinning at a dizzying speed. His acrylic abstractions exuberate copious amounts of energy and are an ultimate representation of modern urban life. There are no limitations to colour or form in Martin’s visual extravaganza; in a single canvas he is able to merge multiple cultures. However, when viewed more carefully, Martin’s densely populated compositions resonate the transitory and disunited true nature of our world.
