Martyn Jones' paintings evoke the spirit of classic late English Modernism - in particular several members of the St Ives School - through their jewel-like flat areas of intense colour. Martyn's abstract paintings are often inspired by the natural world and sometimes are more about that crossover point from figuration to abstraction. A natural colourist, Martyn works from his studio based in Cardiff, having graduated with an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea School of Art, London, following which he was awarded a Junior Fellowship at Bath Academy of Art. Among his tutors were the British artists Adrian Heath (close friend of Terry Frost) and Patrick Heron.
Martyn's work has been exhibited widely in the UK, Europe and U.S.A. including the National Museum of Wales and the Chrysler Building New York. More recently, Martyn's work has been exhibited at ARAGON 232 Barcelona, Van Der Plas Gallery, New York and Art Fair Cologne. In 2018 he will be exhibiting at the Palm Springs Art Fair. His paintings continue to be sought after by numerous public and private collectors.
Martyn has had exhibitions with us in 2013, 2014 and 2015. He had a major exhibition with us in 2017.
