On my blog, each weekday, I share a new small painting – a “daily motif” – inspired by my personal environment. I started my blog and daily painting project one year ago. On the one hand this blog forces me into a certain productivity which does not allow me to be too lazy or too self-confident with my art. On the other hand it’ s a good way to reach persons who normally feel a certain timidity visiting a gallery or a museum. I feel great about this self-imposed daily productivity as well as my larger paintings, which are often inspired by my daily paintings.

I thank you Martin for working outside of your native language to write this wonderful introduction to you and your work. I’m certain many from1artist2another readers will find your art direct, engaging and a “refresh” of every-day-life.
Martin has worked as an artist in Offenburg (southern Germany) since 1992. Mostly he does paintings, but also transforms his themes into “painted objects” or uses photographic patterns to create photopolymer gravures.
