Martin Whist is a visual artist born in Canada who now lives in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia. Whist began his studies in Toronto at the Ontario College of Art and finalized his BFA at Emily Carr College of Art in Vancouver in 1992. During this time, he showed at Catriona Jeffries Gallery in Vancouver. He then moved to Los Angeles where he earned his Masters at Claremont Graduate University in 1994. Upon graduating from CGU, he began showing at Acme Gallery in Los Angeles into the early 2000’s. After a number of years active in the LA art scene, he chose to retract from the public eye in favor of privately developing his art. While doing this, he became interested in film and the creative opportunities it presented. He worked his way in the film industry to become an acclaimed feature film Production Designer. He has recently begun showing his work again and in 2021 had his first show since leaving Acme, at Tew Gallery, in Atlanta, Georgia.
