Event description

Description

Neath born Martin Llewellyn is an entirely self-taught painter. A carpet fitter by trade, he started painting in watercolours around 17 years ago but more recently he has developed into an accomplished painter of oils using a palette knife. He produces richly textured paintings using a subtle, muted palette that beautifully captures the distinctive atmosphere of the Welsh landscape.

Like many Welsh painters of his generation, the influence of Sir Kyffin Williams RA is ever present in his art work but Martin’s palette knife technique is finer and generally worked on a much smaller scale. Like his predecessor, Martin is inspired by Wales’ most dramatic landscapes, travelling the country for inspiration.

Martin first came to the Albany Gallery in the summer of 2012 and his potential was spotted immediately. His work sold well in the mixed exhibitions and his first solo show in 2016 was a sell-out. He has had similar success in galleries in London and North Wales. Martin has now been able to give up his day job as a carpet fitter and concentrate fully on his painting.
