'all artists need a crucible through which their art is formed, mine was disadvantage, mine was disability.'
Martin Kinnear is an oil painter and writer. His work explores themes of loss, resilience, change and regeneration, his painting illustrates how, since 2015 and following a devastating stroke, he has powerfully and emotively brought these themes to galeries and exhibitions across the UK and in Europe.
Martin creates bodies of work in oil, in words and using places to tell stories about how we have become whom we are. His current project REGENERATION documents his experiences of poverty and exclusion and is about how where we live inhabits us.
