Martin Piercy

I am a professional artist living and working in Southsea, Portsmouth. I was best known for my surf and sea paintings but I am also very proud to be able to boast being one of the first people to start painting in this, much copied, style of wild grass painting - and am proud to have sold many paintings in this style to art lovers and collectors over many years. My nautical work is still popular, and I am selling my wave paintings to all parts of the world, but over the past few years of selling work from my own gallery and exhibitions, I have developed a more modern approach - modern floral work and knife painting - but the traditional challenge of human figure painting and portraiture are still important to me. I think all art should be creative, not just a copy of an idea or colours from other people - it needs to have something unique in it - it should be honest to yourself and the people you are selling to. Also, for me, it is important to be in that place and that time - a painting can take me on a journey back to a place and time that was special - and hopefully - take the viewer to a place that we would like to be. It is not enough for me to just paint a nice picture or abstract because it is easy or cheap - I need to be creative and give value for money but I want the real world to come to life in a painting - I love it and any painting you buy from me will be special ... it will never be just a job for me.
