Jason Martin ( 1970 Channel Island UK) is a British artist currently living and working between Lisbon and London.


He is mainly known for his monocromatic paintings. Working in pigment, acrylic, oil paint, graphite and cast metal, Martin interrogates the fundamentals of painting, Jason Martin’s works fluctuate through tension and quiet. His art embodies vitality and energy generating a simultaneity of the image among action and dynamism. His constant quality lies both on a perpetual movement and on a continuous need to question himself and all the infinite ways of painting. Everything calls to mind the dynamism of a “single act” unifying creation and glaze, perfection and observation.
