Nicolas Martin ( b.1980) is a French artist from Paris, now living and working in Montreal, Canada. After completing his studies at the respected Auguste Renoir school in Paris, Nicolas decide to deepen his artistic knowledge and diversify his skills by completing the Graphic Design program at the Universtiy of Laval in Quebec, Canada. 

In 2003 he won 1st Prize in the “La Fondation de la Vocation" scholarship in Paris. Throughout his career, Martin has worked as a designer for the famous Galeries Lafayette in Paris and as Art Director for various companies in Europe and North America. 

He started his career as a professional painter in 2013 with a highly successful Solo show at the L’Oeil du Prince Gallery in Paris, followed by a second equally successful Solo exhibition there the following year. In 2015 he made his US debut in “Urban Life” at Abend Gallery in Denver and was a finalist at the respected ARC Salon. He was also named an “Artist to Watch” by Southwest Art Magazine and featured in the book “Tall Trees of Paris”. Nicolas’s work has also recently been included in the “Realism Without Borders” International group and exhibitions as well featured in the Jetset Collection exhibition at Vanessa Rothe Fine Art in California. 

His third Solo exhibition entitled ” Cinemascope” at the L’Oeil du Prince Gallery in Paris in 2016 was highly acclaimed and proved to be another successful achievement for his career. Nicolas is proud to be exhibiting among top artists, his work is now widely collected in both Europe and North America. His primary goal as a painter… constant evolution.
