Martin Holm

Martin Holm (b.1985) is an independent artist from Sweden with a BA (Fine Art Hons.) from Cambridge School of Art (UK) and an MFA in Fine Art from Valand Academy in Gothenburg. His paint’s pigment is pop culture, art references, classical literature, science and politics, all kneaded together into a lateral questioning of the relationship between spectator and representations of space, be they actual space, spheres of influence, comfort zones, or otherwise. Using the map—both as concept and aesthetic—as a starting point came naturally for him: Across works, series and projects since 2011, Martin’s artistic practice has been on a trajectory illustrated by—in relation to or made out of—cartographical material. For airTranås he is reengaging with a work from 2014, updating context and expanding dimensions.
