Martin Davey is one of the most prolific Say What You See artists, with over 13 canvases to his name, including Action Movies, Grace’s Toons, Countries and Sci Fi Movies. His first canvas was ‘Football’, back in 2011.
Martin has worked commercially for over 20 years in the animation/ advertising market.
His work depicts everyday subjects and situations, but with a twist. He tries to make the illustrations colorful and interesting to the viewer while telling a story, yet still keeping draftsmanship to a high level. Little details of interest and humor are often sprinkled in to the main narrative in the painting. Most of the work is sketched out and digitally painted in photoshop. Some elements are occasionally created in illustrator or built and animated in 3D.
Martin’s background is in production artwork and design for the animation film and TV industry. He also paints various subjects in oils/ acrylic paint on canvas for the fine art market. He is based on the south coast in the UK.
