Martin Hyde

Festival: 2019

I am a contemporary artist based at Haarlem Artspace. I have an MA with distinction. Through my paintings, I reflect on my life as a person living with depression, those around me and my place in the world. My work explores isolation, belonging, identity, divide, empathy and love.

My paintings have been used for album artwork for critically acclaimed bands such as LAU, The Little Unsaid, and Joan as a Police Woman. I have been shortlisted for the Ashurst Emerging Artist award and the RBSA. I have collectors of my paintings throughout the world.
