We are very proud to announce Martin Turner as the Talented Artist of the Year 2018!
Not only did Martin sell 18 individual artworks (including originals and prints) at the Talented Art Fair 2018, but the organisers were blown away by the intricate detail and skill level of this incredible artist.
The astonishing fact that Turner only picked up his pencils in 2016 simply adds to the story. Following a decade of award winning photography, Turner returned to his childhood interest of drawing. Although more used to creating images in hundredths of a second than the 40 to 100 hours that his pencil drawings now take he found that, despite the change in medium, his eye for detail remained the same. Turner is completely self taught which has allowed his work to be become distinctly recognisable up close. He has no sketch books - his final pieces are his only drawings.
We are also delighted to announce that Martin Turner will be re-exhibiting at this year's Talented Art Fair 1-3 March 2019. The event is Free Entry all weekend, or Friday evening Private Tickets tickets are available to purchase here.
Lemon Art's Director Oliver Norris caught up with Martin recently to gain an insight into this incredible artist's history, inspiration and creation process.
