"Glen Martin was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago and currently resides in New York, USA. His early education consisted of all aspects of commercial art including drawing and lettering. His talent and efforts eventually led him to the prestigious Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY on a full scholarship. It was there that he earned his Bachelor's in Fine Art with a major in Illustration and Painting. He has since had nothing short of a successful career spanning forty years; his first shows being sponsored by the Royal Bank of Trinidad and Tobago in 1974. Glen has used various media to convey his concepts including ceramics, printmaking, etching and linocut but he is primarily known for his beautifully rendered landscapes and figurative paintigs which he executes in oils and acrylics. His palette is vibrant and as such, his colours glow on the canvases: his impressionist style evoking romantic and warm tones that have made him a favourite among collectors. Glen surrounds himself with inspiration and advises budding artists to do the same. He is observant of human activity and finds himself being captivated by it, expressing this on his canvases. His female figures clothed in white against soft backgrounds and his colourful musicians moving within the scene convey both energy and emotion as Glen expertly captures the forms. His work hangs in private collections internationally and Glen has shown in many prestigious galleries in the United States." - Trinidad Express, "Glen Martin Returns To Horizons" 17th January 2014 Grand Opening: January 28th 2014 from 7pm to 8:30pm Exhibition closes on February 8th 2014 Opening Hours: Monday to Friday from 9am to 5:30pm Saturdays from 9am to 1pm
