John Martin is a native of the Hudson Valley. The formative years of his childhood had a special significance for his love of nature.
He studied and apprenticed with Philip Guston in the 70s at his studio in Woodstock, NY, then continued his studies and apprenticeship at the Woodstock School of Art. John has taught as a resident artist in New York City, Ireland, Mexico, and Costa Rica. His list of students is wide and varied, and his work hangs in many private collections here and abroad.
John maintains a classical tradition applying it to modern aesthetics. His concept is solid and tested. i.e., drawing is a fundamental, combined with essential laws that govern form and color allowing full expression to emerge.
John now lives and paints in Kingston, NY.
