Major solo exhibition 15 September 2023. Neath-based Martin Llewellyn continues the tradition of Welsh palette knife painting laid down in the last century by such greats as Sir Kyffin Williams and Charles Wyatt-Warren. It’s a distinctly Welsh style, with the country’s moody, windswept landscape providing the inspiration. Martin has mastered the palette knife in a relatively short time, having started painting just 16 years ago, while also working as a carpet fitter. He originally worked in watercolour before discovering his talent for painting with oils using a palette knife. “Martin brought a few paintings to the Albany in 2012 for appraisal and we immediately could see his potential,” says Albany Gallery owner Mary Yapp. “He sold well in the group shows and since 2014 has had solo exhibitions which have proved to be very successful". In pursuing this style of painting with such passion and talent, Martin has quickly risen to be regarded as one of today’s leading Welsh palette knife painters, with work in collections all over the world. He has now become one of the gallery’s top selling artists, with sell out exhibitions in North Wales and London.
