Martin Beaupré is a Canadian artist who loves working with several media to give his work a restful, almost Zen-like aura. He uses oil paint, modeling paste, sand, Swarovski crystal, and ink to achieve unique textures. Martin looks for inspiration in his travels to Asia, particularly Thailand and Japan. In his work, there is a reason behind every detail and nothing is left to chance. He strives to create the maximum effect with the minimum means where the void is to be embellished, but never filled. His work is filled with mountains, flowering cherry trees, geisha’s, and monks.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
