Original interpretations of everyday, popular figures and pure colour play a pivotal role in the extraordinary work of Julian Martin. Over two decades his work has evolved as a journey of formal transformation where the mundane becomes mysterious, and the image ineffable.- Dr Cheryl Daye.
Julian's work was very well received at this year's Art's Project Australia's section at the Melbourne Artfair, on 16 August 2014. Congratulations for another successful year.
