Martin French Wall Art

Martin French is an educator, designer and illustrator based in Portland, Oregon. He has a distinctive style that involves interplay of symbols, signs, and marks spanning a diverse media context. His art has been recognized internationally for its energetic visual exploration of culture and life. His art has won numerous awards from the leading visual communication organizations across the US, including Gold Medals from the Society of Illustrators in Los Angeles and New York. He was born in the San Francisco Bay Area, and he holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration from ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, Ca. French spent eight years as a design director and designer at Microsoft before he launched the Martin French Studio in 1996. A decade later, he moved to Portland where he designed the Bachelor of Fine Art program in Illustration at the Pacific Northwest College of Art.

He’s currently Chairman of Design Arts and is also an Associate Professor teaching classes in Visual Thesis Development, Creative Professional Practice, and the intersection of Illustration & Design. In his professional practice, he has been focusing on taking symbols from daily life and reworking them into images compelling enough to hit passing audiences with an experience of intellectual and aesthetic encounter. He’s been especially fascinated by how the unique vision an individual artist, when honed and developed, can be at once widely transcendent and yet exclusively personal. This fascination with the communal paradox and the expressive inherent in artistic development is what led him away from a career as a design director to start his own design and illustration practice. Its questions and contours still energize his practice and development as a visual communicator.
