MARTIN RAYMENT

Martin Rayment is a Berlin born artist currently based in the UK. His practice depicts a visual expression rehearsing a surrealist intent.
The work feeds from primarily from expired 50s Hollywood imagery and forgotten books.
He appropriates expired imagery within a variety of different medias. He uses collections of out-dated imagery and carefully selects and dissects them to be re-constructed into digital Illustrations.
They often become geometrically adorned beings that inhabit oceanic landscapes. Crystallized crowns and a sludge substance often adorn these subject’s.
Black and White ink patterns intend to establish motion in the stillness of his drawings.
The work is always evolving.

Influences include Retro-Futurism and the works of René Magritte, Dr Lakra and JG Ballard. Previous projects have depicted the saturated desperation of modern life.

Side projects: Knobbler. Through him he explores the idea of what our childhood characters are like when they grow up and encounter adult life. Knobbler has fallen into the dark dimensions of adulthood and he’s enjoying it just a little too much.
