Carlos Garde-Martin at Pick Me Up 2015

I made this video to document my involvement in Pick Me Up 2015 at Somerset House, London. You get to see behind the scenes footage of us setting up the Niki Best shop. There are clips from the private view, and more general shots over the 12 day festival. It was such a fantastic thing to be part of, if you couldn’t make it I hope this will fill you in on some of what you missed. Similarly if you did make it down and want to reminisce watch away!


Illustrator - Muralist - Printmaker Brighton Fringe Festival illustrator 2013 I am proud to have been selected to be this year's Brighton Fringe Festival illustrator. The Fringe Festival is England's largest arts festival turning Brighton in to a sea of creativity throughout the month of May every year. Under the art direction of Paul Copeland I have created this years brochure cover design, and inside illustrations. Make sure you're in Brighton this May so you don't miss out! Hello! My name is Carlos Garde-Martin, I create fun, brightly coloured, and well thought out imagery that keeps you looking. Sometimes I draw on paper and sometimes on walls. I also make screen prints from my studio space in central Brighton. Please contact me if you have any commissions you would like to discuss, or to request a portfolio meeting. No job too big or small. Some of my clients include The Brighton Fringe Festival, Nixon McInnes, Spindle Magazine, Storm CP, Madame Geisha bar, and Digital Artist magazine. You can also see my work appearing in exhibitions up and down the country. If you would like to buy some of my artwork you can do so from Frame of Mind, Castor and Pollux, and Hand-made. I also run workshops for schools and museums, one of the most recent being the Big Draw campaign for Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery. I teach illustration at the Friends Centre in Brighton, and guest lecture at K College.
