Martin is a studio artist at the ARTgarage My artistic focus for my work is color exploration and expression of ideas and emotions through abstract and metaphoric means. I am inspired by the problems I see in society, myself and others. These things help drive me as an artist to make a difference through my art.
I must create. For me there is nothing more satisfying. It is what I do. Sometimes I see things others do not. I see faces, animals, and objects within patterns.

It is where I feel connected. That is why I make art. That is why I love. For more information visit: Andrewlinskens.com

These are questions I explored in these paintings. Previously, I have looked at how listening to a particular genre of music affects an entire painting’s content, from the composition and colors to the mark making, each...
