Martin Richardson is a practical craftsman whose work is an incredible marriage between art and technology, where both disciplines inform each other. Getting his big break working with David Bowie, he has gone on to become a major innovator in a state-of-the-art medium and the artist who brought Marilyn Monroe back to life in an unforgettable lenticular print.
Martin Richardson began his career as a photography student at the Royal College of Art where he experimented with the latest photography techniques and became the first ever student in the world to be awarded a Master of Arts in holographic art.
Lenticulars are made using proprietary print software and a special lens material, known as a micro-lens. These, combined with other optical components create a 3-D moving image called a lenticular. As we move into the digital epoch, Lenticular Technology offers artists the opportunity of construct mini three-dimensional representations of our physical world albeit, as ever, an illusion.
