Happy Pride! Today, I thought it was high time we took a look at the utterly fabulous art by Adrian Martin. I found Martin’s prints recently while looking for pride-themed art on Etsy, and I fell instantly in love! He does glorious illustrations of drag queens, in particular the contestants from RuPaul’s Drag Race. His mid-century modern sensibilities mixed with his favorite subjects make for some very powerful, memorable images.

I wasn’t able to find out anything about the artist, so we’ll just have to enjoy his art. Wishing everyone a very happy LGBTQ pride!

You can see all of Adrian Martin’s fabulous art on Instagram and in his Etsy shop.

  1. Greetings Donna,

    Thank you for bringing this wonderful artist in to your spotlight. This is the first I’ve heard/seen Adrian Martin or their works. From the Houston, Texas area, Martin is younger and already a well-established artist*, deftly blending together possibly influences of Dali and Art-Deco in creating his beautiful works of art. The colorful balances in his works are a joy to see.

    Thank you again, Donna, for all you share every day. Hoping a Happy Pride for you as well.

  2. It’s like the Jetsons meet Picasso. I like it.

  3. I adore the mid-century vibe of these. It makes me think “If the Jetsons had glam Drag Queen neighbours”. The colour combinations are also fantastic.
