Bernhard Martin has spent the last 20 years creating a unique visual world where lowbrow mingles with highbrow, freedom is defined outside of the system, and pictorial style is determined by the subject matter at hand. His extravagant narratives combine influences that feed into a bizarre and unfathomable alternate reality, one where everyone from Renaissance masters to Francis Bacon and Picasso act as advisors to a deeply personal deconstruction of the medium of painting itself.


Martin’s conceptual approach to painting has rewritten the rules of the game—an staggering achievement he has been recognized for with Berlin’s distinguished 2015 Fred Thieler Prize for Painting and the first exhibition which took place at the newly reopened Berlinische Galerie.


Martin has shown his work in a number of solo exhibitions including Museum für Moderne Kunst Berlin, Germany, Choi&Lager Galerie, Cologne, Germany, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Paris Marais, France, Galerie Thomas Schulte, Berlin, Union Gallery, London, England, Kunsthalle Lingen, Lingen, Germany, Galería Joan Prats, Barcelona, Spain, Arario Museum, Seoul, South Korea, and Spencer Brownstone Gallery, New York, among others.
