Artist Statement

Martin’s work is a reflection on the human condition in urban space.  Berlin plays a crucial role in Martin’s work. His style is both: poetic and at the same time analytical. 

Martin is a keen observer of the dynamic,  impermanence and transiency in urban space. He explores the underlying emotions of the city between existential angst, boredom and joy.
