Martyn Evans was born and brought up in Aberdare, in the coal-mining valleys of Wales and graduated from the University of Wales at Cardiff.
Things I Can Do
His art was inspired by his changed vision of the architecture, geography and history of his birthplace. He no longer saw the Valleys as many had, as collections of drab buildings and cold, misty and rainy landscapes.
His depictions are Lowryesque, but much more than that. They are heavily influenced by the clear, golden light of New Zealand and by its colorful Maori art and culture.
A Few Accomplishments
Martyn's paintings provide a cheerful, factual link with their heritage, an interpretation of Wales that will satisfy nostalgia and a sense of historical belonging whilst simultaneously being high quality pieces of art that will brighten up any wall.
