Simon Martin is an artist.

Simon Martin is a self-taught abstract painter and photographer based in Manchester. Using fluid, textural colour palettes, his art expresses exquisite unique moments in time.

Experiential beauty revealed by colour, light and texture.


Born in South Africa, Simon emigrated to England in 1974. Simon Martin has experimented with photography from the age of 15 and despite a three-decade corporate career which subverted his artistic ambitions, Simon Martin emerged from ill health and the death of a close friend and collaborator to fulfil his deepest passion.

Gestural, expressive works, immersing the viewer.
