About Martin Darkside


M. Darkside aka Martin Woodhead is a Dark art artist from the UK who specializes in oil painting. Drawn to dark imagery and the Vanitas Dutch style, Martin realized that the method communicated a story with each piece. Using that classical method, Martin began creating his own pieces to share the stories that intrigue him.

M. Darkside's love for the horror genre has influenced his work throughout the years, and he continues to create his own hauntingly beautiful paintings.
