About the artist: Petrus Martens resides in mid-Michigan and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Florida State University along with a fellowship from Yale University where he studied printmaking, sculpture and painting. While predominantly a painter, most recently he has taken great interest in travel-print advertising from the early 20th century. His Inspiration comes from a combined fascination of the subject matter, colors, composition and the craftsmanship employed in this foregone era of printmaking. He combines drawings/paintings and text to create each piece resembling a vintage poster.
