When Graham Martin joined the Peerpoint panel it was a way to continue developing his legal career while also pursuing a passion for painting, having studied at art school prior to his move into law.
Proving that it is possible to develop a career at the same time as a passion, in 2018 Graham was selected for the John Moores Painting Prize – the UK’s longest-established painting prize (whose past winners include David Hockney) and he has recently completed an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art in London.
"Being a legal consultant has allowed me to take time off between contracts and focus on my studio practice. Consultancy is great because it gives such variety, and provides a unique insight into how different clients and teams operate.”
Graham has also just established a new artist-run gallery and project space based in a Victorian townhouse in South East London and their first exhibition at 'Trafalgar Avenue', launched on 11 June 2021. More details about this exhibition and forthcoming events at the gallery can be found here.
