Martin Campos

Figurative oil painter Martin Campos describes himself as a late bloomer. He began painting in earnest in his late 20s and didn’t go to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA) where he teaches now until his 30’s. Martin describes a pivotal moment at PAFA when an instructor with a Cheshire Cat grin made a suggestion that ended up changing everything about Martins paintings.

Martin also talks about the domino effect in his work, how his paintings are almost premonitions of what his life will be, and why its so important to paint something that truly scares you.
