ABOUT MARTIN: Martin Baptist is founder and Creative Director of Japan National, since 2017. In 2020 he launched the Japan National Concept Store Gallery in Byron Bay, Australia. Martin’s paintings are a mix of astute observations and out loud thoughts. His work has a dark sense of humour that he matches off against the everyday. His imagery ranges from oblique pop culture references to loose figurative observations. Baptist’s use of text adds a cryptic overture, ranging from gentle jest to subversive honesty. Baptist's work questions how we live our daily lives. Often stating the obvious he creates an air of uncertainty around the simplest of things.
