Born and raised in Coatbridge, a small working-class town on the outskirts of Glasgow, Scotland, Sully (Martin Sullivan) took to drawing and painting from a very young age. He would then later graduate from the Edinburgh college of art with a Bachelors degree in Visual communication. He now lives in Sydney, Australia.
Sully's describes his work as abstract geometric. Using heavy brush strokes and straight lines he pieces together the subject matter in an original way. He aims to stand out from the crowd with his style and show his versatility through a painting style rather than a specific subject matter. His work is also an insight into him as a person or at least the person he try's his best to be every day. Bright, bold, colourful, energetic and above all, honest.
He believes that art is for everyone and tries to convey that message through his work and his overall brand. His approach to painting is drawn from raw, honest emotion and a celebration of his individuality and acceptance of who he is and what he’s been through. He aims to shake things up in the art world and change the online art buying process and the way its perceived.
