Martin Lambuth
Denver, CO

Painted with credit cards, Martin’s unique style reads as realism at a distance, but up close you see the abstraction, looseness and textures buried in layers of rich color. Splatters and squiggly lines superimposed on top lend an antiquated look and energy.

Martin’s paintings are about more than the subject matter. It’s about nostalgia and history—although forgotten in the weeds, these vehicles can still take you on a ride to grandpa’s farm or bumping down a dusty, country road in dad’s pickup. It’s about shapes—large, round fenders contoured over the wheels, teardrop headlights bugging out of the fender and elegantly shaped cabs. And it’s about character—chrome bumpers and hubcaps reflecting the details of the surrounding landscape and amazing grills that take on the characteristics of a familiar smiling face, complemented by sun-baked and rain-burnished finishes. 

An award-winning artist, Martin has been juried into local, regional and national shows. He has work in the permanent collection of the Cheyenne Depot Museum, commissioned pieces in the permanent collection of The Children’s Hospital in both Denver and Parker, work selected as the anchor piece for the Kaiser Permanente medical center in Castle Rock, as well as vintage trucks found in corporate collections. One of his train paintings received the First Place award at the 2013 Cheyenne RailArt show and his truck art received the People's Choice award in the 2014 Art in the Square festival in Southlake, Texas.
