Heavily influenced by music, Martel Chapman creates a world driven by jazz musicians and musical instruments. In a great effort to Rescue a traditional style, Martel uses Cubism as his basis to develop his complex compositions and deliver a musical atmosphere with his portraits.

 



“I came across John Coltrane's "Blue Train" re-issue in 1997. I did not realize that his music would change my life. I hadn't recognized what artistry was until that point. I listened to the opening theme a dozen times on my way to work that day. A year later, I quit that job and decided that my main energy was going to be dedicated to the music of jazz and the individuals that created it.” Martel Chapman
