Local artist showcases exhibition at creative space FuseBox

Martin Alton is an artist in Kingston whose pieces were on show in an exhibition titled Cracked Paint at FuseBox on Friday (April 19).

The creative space, part of Creative Youth, hosted the exhibition and a book signing event where some of his work of the last ten years was on display.

Alton’s work focused on landscapes and figurative art, often influenced by British neo-romantic artists.

“It’s a way of summing up why I do art,” Alton said in regard to the book and the event.

People who attended the event could buy his book and ask him questions, as well as enjoying his art. On display there were many local scenes. Alton has done many drawings of Kingston, some of which are part of the Brill Collection, part of Kingston’s heritage.
