Martin Brown - Fine Art Mosaics for the Modern World

Alas, I am happy to present the work of British artist/deigner, Martin Brown, mosaic art that is truly fresh and different.

Brown, first appeared on the art and design scene working as a textile designer in collaboration with fashion houses as Issey Miyake, Oscar de la Renta and Christian Dior.

After participation in a publicity campaign for Shiseido and the design of the Dragon Café in Tokyo, he moved to Mexico, where he created mural mosaic and tile decorations for fashion stores, restaurants and private residences.

His work is included in a number of impressive art collections such as Collection Azcarraga, the Gelman Collection, the Foundation Miguel Aleman in Mexico and the Collection von Bismarck in Marbella. His creations are a unique hybrid of classical, baroque, neo-Mexican, retro and avant-garde styles, executed with the finest craftsmanship, using Talavera ceramic, Byzantine and cut glass mosaic.

Truly a man of the world, Brown’s stunning mosaics can be found in public spaces in Mexico City, Palm Beach and Denver. He has completed numerous commissions for private residences in Acapulco, Cancun, Cuernavaca, Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta , in Mexico and in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami and Austin in the United States. His work can also be seen in Egypt, France, Italy, Great Britain, and Switzerland.

In 1998, he opened the avant-garde home store, HACKING & BROWN, in
Mexico City, with partner Tina Hacking, which features his own line of furniture, ceramics and carpets as well as that of other designers

His work has been exhibited individually ,as well as collectively across the globe.

He has been featured in interior design magazines, such as ELLE DÉCOR, METROPOLITAN HOME, ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST, IDFX, Casa Decor, Nuevo Estilo, Mujer Hoy and Diseño Interior. His work has also been used in Absolut Vodka publicity campaigns.

In 2003, Martin Brown moved to Barcelona, where he has continued to work on private commissions and a series of panels , based on the city and with interior designers such as Pascua Ortega and Maipi Esteban . Project locations include Cordoba, Cadiz and Mallorca . He produces four collections each year of his own line of mosaics.
