His first major inspiration was the art of Hieronymus Bosch. However, the turning point was a visit to the Joan Miró Museum in Mallorca. From that time on, he took up painting seriously, and developed his own unique style.
Martin Antonius usually creates his paintings spontaneously, directly on canvas, without prior sketches. This gives his art a unique authenticity.
Martin Antonius was born in 1987 and is based in Stockholm and Marbella.
