Martin Grover is a consummate screen printer and painter. His work weaves a love of Brixton, soul music and keen observation into nostalgic and enigmatic works. Eschewing digital and photographic processes Martin creates his stencils by painting directly on to the screen. With this method he creates unique and richly layered works that capture local cityscapes, flat still lives of old 45s and evocative dreamscapes. His more narrative pieces are informed by observations, anecdotes from newspapers, childhood reminisces, short stories and songs.
Martin studied at at Croydon College, Trent Polytechnic and the Royal Academy Schools. Since then he has exhibited extensively in group and solo exhibitions. He regularly shows his work at the Bankside Gallery, the Affordable Art Fair and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
