Few artists could claim to be in the collections of such a distinguished line-up of celebrities as that claimed by MARTY. His works are owned by a large celebrity base.
Born in London’s East End, MARTY proudly boasts of his Romany background that brings to his work a unique fire and light which is his distinctive hallmark. Coming from a designer background, much of MARTY’s career has been involved with interior design which has taken him to the four corners of the world branching out from there into bespoke jewellery design and now fine art, too.
His recent shows include Pop Secret - The Chelsea Art Gallery (Duke of York Sq), Pop Up Chelsea Art Gallery (St James St, SW1), The Affordable Art Fair - Catherine Miller (Battersea), The Brick Lane Art Car Boot Fair (Brick Lane, E1), Psycadelic Caravan (Foremans Smokehouse Gallery), Infame (Foremans Smokehouse Gallery), Marty's Art & Jewellery (22 Portsea Place, W2), The Urban Art Fair (Brixton), Pop Sphere The Exhibition (Sphere Gallery, 72 Brushfield St, Old Spitalfields Market), Marty at the Eddie - Popup (King Edward, Stratford E15), Prime Focus (Dean St, Soho) Plate Alice Herrick Gallery (French Place, Shoreditch), Coram - The Hogarth Dinner & Auction, Chelsea Arts Club, Muse Gallery (Portobello Rd), SOLO (New York City). His artworks represent the culmination of his experiences and global adventures and, of course, that gypsy blood that gives his work that matchless sparkle.
Marty's favourite colour is glitter, pop art at its most colourful.
