Pete Martin



I live and work as a professional artist, I am known for both my watercolours and engaging aerial perspective paintings of the landscape.
As a professional Artist, I truly love what I do, I can’t imagine my life without the challenge of creating meaningful artworks. My use of multi-layered colour and light is readily identifiable and sets my work apart from the traditional landscapes.

I create works that will intrigue and provoke you, my works are designed as much as they are created. It’s one thing to depict a scene accurately, it’s another thing entirely to portray the character and the mood of a place. While trends come and go, my work will stand the test of time and remain as articulate as the day it was created.

With over 21 solo exhibitions and many group shows behind me, I am known as an Artist, a Gallery owner, Curator, Art Lecturer and Art Judge. I have received many local and two international awards; my works hang in private and public collections throughout the world. Professionally, I was Gallery Director at RM Galleries (Hamilton) and owner and Director of Martin Galleries (Nundah). I lectured at Brisbane Institute of Art and have held many workshops and curated over 160 exhibitions; I am frequently called on to judge art exhibitions, currently working on new works and commissions in my Sandgate studio.

My works are given titles for identification, but to me they are chapters in an ongoing story.
