Timothy David Martin began drawing at the age of 7 years in his home province of Ontario. He studied art seriously at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto in the 1970s and later worked as a cartoonist with the newspaper at the University of Toronto. Tim, currently living in Peace River, has selected 24 works of original graphite on bristle board to exhibit this month. The strong influences of Escher and Dali are immediately apparent. The dimension he creates and the eclectic imagery will surely surprise viewers. Tim’s work may be described as abstract expressionism as it seems to exhibit the improvisational elements renown for this ‘audacious’ 1940s art style.
Be sure to take in this remarkable exhibit by Timothy David Martin during February.
