Profile

London born Irish bred Martin O’Neill is an illustrator & artist who creates collages for a wide range of International clients encompassing publishing, advertising, design & installation work. His work can be seen frequently in the UK and US press. He regularly exhibits his personal collages, sketchbooks and prints & is a visiting lecturer across the UK. He lives and works on England’s South East coast with his wife and two daughters.

“If Peter Blake is the Paul McCartney of collage, then O’Neill is its Tom Waits, a pre-digital artist for a post-digital age. “

John L Walters. Editor Eye Magazine Eye 69

Process

Martin’s work evolves from a subtle alchemy of collage, silkscreen, photography, paint, and digital techniques. Years of hands on studio experimentation has resulted in his unique and instantly recognisable style of image making. Martin works from a large archive of found and self generated material and also works with stock and supplied imagery.
