Who To Follow On Instagram: @marsproject

Without a doubt, @marsproject is one of the most talented artists of our generation.  Martin Wittfooth, aka @marsproject, has been creating spellbinding imagery for many years and his success in the art world is a testament to his overall skills as an oil painter.  Over the years, he has established himself amongst the best as he has carved out a place for himself within the ranks of the most recognized contemporary artists.  @marsproject exhibits a prophetic vision of life and nature through his paintings, creating otherworldly scenarios where animals rule the earth in a landscape completely devoid of humans.

I first met @marsproject a number of years ago, when he showed a piece in a group show at Ad Hoc Art, a gallery in Brooklyn where I was working at the time.  The painting he submitted for the show already possessed the raw talent that would later come to define his career.  It was quite obvious at that time that he was on an upward trajectory and I have kicked myself numerous times for not picking up that painting while I had the chance.  While he has since refined his style and tightened up his work, @marsproject has ultimately been consistent, tirelessly growing and evolving as an artist.

His artwork glows with an energy that comes from within, drawing the viewer ever closer, like a tractor beam, unrelenting in its grasp and hypnotizing the individual with his inspiring subject matter.  @marsproject injects life and essence into each and every painting, which radiates from the surface of the piece while hung on the gallery wall.  His artwork has both charisma and confidence and is never afraid to start a conversation, just as long as the viewer is willing to mutually engage.  And once that channel of communication has opened, there is no telling how deep the rabbit hole goes.

@marsproject is a master of his craft and a true shamanistic visionary.  His Instagram account is filled with some of his best work and he is constantly adding new and exciting pieces.  There are few individuals who can affect people both far and wide through artwork alone, but Martin Wittfooth is one of them.  He has built a solid career and it's only growing larger.  These are exciting times for @marsproject and I would highly suggest following him now and seeing the places that he goes with his artwork.
