About The Artist - Martin Whatson


Martin Watson is a Norwegian-born artist, whose graphic, street style has been evolving on the walls and shutters of cities around the world over nearly two decades. Whatson studied Art and Graphic Design at the Westerdals School of Communication in Oslo, where, alongside learning the tricks and techniques of art practice, he fostered a keen interest in the emergent graffiti art movement of the 1990s. Inspired by the work of Banksy, Whatson took up his stencils and spray paints and began to develop his own, urban aesthetic: creating monochromatic images from simple stencils, Whatson then fills his works with bright lashings of colourful spray paint. Taking inspiration from the people and places around him, Whatson is drawn to metropolitan spaces, fuelled by decaying architectural sites, peeling posters, and crumbling graffiti walls, signed by anonymous figures. Apolitical, his works are instead concerned with a subtle messages and transmissions of feeling: each, ambiguous piece is designed to evoke emotion in its viewer, and each viewer takes their own journey and makes their own conclusions. An aesthetics of beauty and colour is key. Today, Whatson’s work can be seen in murals across the globe, from Stavanger and Oslo, to Paris and Tokyo, as well as in galleries and private exhibitions, in the form of originals and hand finished limited editions on aluminium, wood, and paper.
