Francis Martin

Francis works as a fine and applied artist on private commissions and feature film productions, and his work includes portraiture and still life. For the exhibition Francis is creating a painting inspired by trompe l’oeil featuring elements of Colombia and Oro Verde, based on my visit to Colombia in March.

A Trompe l'oeil painting by Francis for Chelsea Farmers Market

Trompe l'oeil is an art technique involving extremely realistic imagery in order to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects appear in three-dimensions, instead of actually being a two-dimensional painting.
