About the Artist
Martin Whatson is a Norwegian born and based stencil artist. While studying Art and Graphic design at Westerdals School of Communication in Oslo, he discovered stencils and the urban art scene. After following graffiti and its development, he started his own stencil production in 2004. Martin has a continuous urge to search for beauty in what is commonly dismissed as ugly, out of style or left behind. He looks for inspiration in people, city landscapes, old buildings, posters and decaying walls; the latter which has help develop his style, motives and composition. He enjoys creating unity or conflict between materials, backgrounds, motives and human intervention.
