Every once in a while an artist comes along whose style, creativity and powers of observation puts them above their contemporaries. Martial Robin from France is one of them. His paintings capture the essence of animals, with a contemporary twist. He truly believes that his artistic search took him back on the expression and emotion quest.
He first took up a paintbrush around the age of 12, though he had been drawing before then. He quickly built up several exhibitions, mainly through his paintings with horses, which he worked almost exclusively in his early days.
Martial experiments a lot with his art, mainly working with paper and/or wooden panels, and his mediums are chalk, pencils, pastels and acrylics and his palette - a collection of the subtle colors of nature. He describes his paintings as expressive since he tries to focus on the animal's expression more than anything else.
Martial's paintings have been appreciated worldwide and have been sold in more than 70 different countries, and continue to hang in several galleries across France, Australia and Finland.
