Martin Whatson is a Norvegian stencil artist born in 1984.
While studying Art and Graphic design at Westerdals School of Communication, Oslo, he discovered stencils and the urban art scene. After following graffiti and its development, he started his own stencil production 15 years ago in the winter of 2004.
Martin has a continuous urge to search for beauty in what is commonly dismissed as ugly, out of style or simply left behind. He looks for inspirations in people, city landscapes, old buildings, graffiti, posters and decaying walls.
He use grey tones as a basis but add’s vibrant colors to break the monochrome concrete expression and bring a splash of life to his motives.
