Michel Martel – Oil and Acrylic
Michel Martel is a relative newcomer to Naramata, having moved here from Washington State almost three years ago. In his work life, and in his art life, Michel has traveled around the world, feeding his passion for colour and culture.
An artist since childhood, Michel gathers inspiration from his travels both locally and abroad, and immerses himself in art wherever he lives – whether it be Quebec, Washington, Chile or more recently Buenos Aires, where he spent one month at an artist workshop.
In this month’s featured painting, Michel was inspired by a stormy day off the coast of Croatia near Dubrovnik.
Michel is a member of Naramata Arts Studio, which has art displayed at Lang Vineyards year round. The Naramata Arts Studio also holds an exhibition and sale in the Village of Naramata during the opening weekend of the Fall Wine Festival.
