Dennis James Martin (b. Kansas City, Missouri, April 13, 1956-d. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, April 19, 2001)
specialist in metal-point drawing, Dennis Martin kept alive a tradition
that is one of the oldest drawing techniques, dating back to the
Italian Renaissance and to artists Michelangelo and da Vinci. His goal
is to create timeless pieces that viewers will enjoy.
his drawings are figurative and are done in pure platinum and gold. He
used a thin rod to draw with a slow, tedious, and exacting method which
involves a lot of time spent preparing the surface to receive the
marks. A single work could take up to six months to complete.
