Exclusive Release | Martin Langford – ‘Disaster’
Watch out – ‘Disaster’ is coming! This brand new large-scale piece by master printmaker Martin Langford will be released for sale at 9am on Saturday 15 September at an exclusive pre-show discount. Don’t miss your chance!
To celebrate the opening of Martin’s major new solo show, ‘This Is Us’, at For Arts Sake later this month, we are delighted to announce the online release of a spectacular new work by the acclaimed British artist.
The monumental ‘Disaster’ is a fantastic, intricate etching that confronts the relentless consumerism of our modern age.
Says Martin: “‘Disaster’ is a man-made beast created from our constant consumption and disposal. It seems that no matter how much footage we watch of oceans flooded with plastic bottles, and landfill, there is no stopping this beast from growing.”
The artwork comes in a limited edition of 100, signed and numbered by the artist, and is sized 74 x 59.5cm.
It is one of a series of powerful works by Martin interrogating our impact on the world. “‘This Is Us’ is about how we have collectively as a society ‘created’ what we have now,” he explains. “The large creatures I draw – whether they are made from buildings, industry, cities or the junk we throw out – these represent ‘us’; a manifestation of our actions.”

A member of the prestigious Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, Martin studied Fine Arts at Exeter and under the renowned David Glück on the Advanced Printmaking MA at Central St Martin’s.
He was drawn early on to the graphic black and white quality of etching, and cites among his inspirations the late comic book author Harvey Pekar, Robert Crumb, Georges Seurat and M.C. Escher. Martin has exhibited widely and internationally, including in New York, Chicago, Washington and Taiwan.
