Mid-September News Flash: Reminders! Rappels!
Monday, September 17 at 7pm Martin Cheek will be giving a talk.
“The creative process: inspiration for mosaic”.
Martin Cheek graduated in graphic design from Exeter College of Art & Design in 1981. Having made award winning films as a student, he subsequently worked on several puppet animation projects including “The Wind in the Willows” “Paddington Bear” “Noddy in Toyland” and “Portland Bill”. He then set up his own production company Cheeky Films Ltd.
For many years Martin was a part time lecturer at the Royal College of Art in London. He is a former art critic for the Daily Express and now works full time as a professional mosaic artist in Broadstairs, England. Martin is regularly commissioned by both private and corporate clients as well as by museums. His work also appears in leading national magazines and newspapers as well as on television. His weekend courses in the UK and abroad continue to be popular with students from all over the world keen to learn the art of making mosaic. Over 2000 people have now attended Martin’s courses.
“Mosaic is becoming more and more popular both as an art form and as a decorative medium. I regard my mosaic work as a logical progression from animation, both of which involve building a coherent whole, displaying character and movement, from thousands of tiny elements. I am particularly inspired by the natural world and relish the challenge of capturing its organic grace in such a seemingly uncompromising medium.”
Martin wrote one of the first Mosaic Art books and had the first mosaic website in 1994. His world renowned mosaics are coveted by collector’s and his classes by students worldwide.
