Martin Saar

Martin Saar (b. 1980) is an Estonian artist who also lives and works in New York.

The artist about himself:
“At the age of 16 my dad gave me a set of oil paints and there was no going back. I started to explore and study the fascinating world of art.

In 2002 after moving to New York I started doing commission mosaic portraits but in my heart I wanted to envolve as a painter. Step by step, by learning and practicing, I got my first solo show at the Gallery in Hamptons.

I started exploring new mediums and testing different techniques such as graphic design, painting, photography and airbrush. After more than 30 shows in the past 10 years, I still feel that every new painting is better than the last. I am eager to keep learning, experimenting and pushing the limits to see how far I can take my passion.”
