MARTIN GROVER is an established painter and screen printer. His inspirations are simple: childhood recollections, minor street scenes, small news items, poetry, popular songs, advertising, lost or abandoned ephemera, old 45’s, sheds and bus stops. His style can range from straight ahead realism to pop art parody through to whimsical illustration; all produced with wry humour and an occasional hint of melancholy.
