The Artist: Martin Decent

Martin Decent was born and lives in Sheffield. His paintings are essentially preceptions of places or subjects - half remembered, half forgotten. Colour is very important to Martin, and he incorporates paint, resin, sand, gold leaf, cloth material , gesso and found objects in his work to create a highly textured finish. Martin states; 'Recurring symbolism or totems alongside 'found objects' and collage has always been important in my work. None of these paintings are intended to be realistic; they are more my interpretation of subjects that are intended to interact with the individual'. Martin has exhibited in London and throughout Yorkshire and the North West. In addition to his painting career, he has also produced books about painting techniques, and his work also regularly appears in 'The Artist', 'International Artist' and 'Painting with Watercolour' magazines.

As a crude rule of thumb, fine art images look best on our art paper and photographs look best on photo paper. However, the differences are subtle and the right paper for you often comes down to personal preference and style. Each paper produces great results and there isn't a "wrong" choice.

Mini prints

Created using our fine art paper, mini prints are museum-quality reproductions at smaller, more affordable sizes.



Our canvases use thick 400gsm artist-grade cotton canvas with a subtle textured finish, for consistent detail, clarity and precision.

All stretched and framed canvases are 38mm deep, and use a finger-jointed frame and wooden corner wedges to prevent warping and to ensure the canvas remains taut.
