"My work consists of faces, repetitive shapes, and line drawings. The faces tend to appear deep and vacant, which suits the deep, earthy color schemes that I prefer to work with. I enjoy working with the one-line drawing technique as there is no right or wrong way to do this, and often the mistakes or imperfections become the most appealing part of the drawing.
"I draw a lot of inspiration from music – I always listen to music when painting. Music can resurface a lot of memories, and if I am drawn to a specific lyric or tune, I’m transported to a particular time or place. I’ll listen to a song on repeat whilst painting a piece to focus on that specific memory, be it, good or bad. Most of my work focuses on relationships and the feelings and experiences that follow.
"There is also a great book I read a few years ago which I often revisit called ‘The power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking’, which provides insights into the way introverts behave and reasoning as to why people are introverts. Working in a fast paced industry, I’m often forced to be extroverted, and this is where the inspiration from my more complex pieces tends to come from, as I find painting is a good way to re-energize and silence my mind." - Angus Martin
Angus Martin has been featured in ArtsHub, talking about 'How to survive and thrive as an introvert in the arts': "‘Introversion to me is having two versions of who I am, the 'on' me that people interact with daily, and the true me who only very few see. It's being conceived as anti-social and shy, when really most people don’t realize is there is a depth of ideas, thoughts, and feelings that I may only share with a select few.’"
