The Quarry Worker

Martin returned for the 2nd time after his work for the very first edition of NuArt Aberdeen was demolished  early 2021 as part of Aberdeen City Council’s ambitious Queen Street regeneration project.

“It happens from time to time,” said Martin who was aware his mural was going to be demolished.
“When you paint outside, you have weather, wind, things get demolished… it’s a natural thing (to happen when) painting on the street.”  Martin was thrilled to be invited back to “put a mark on the city” again. And this time, he decided to take inspiration from the Granite City itself.
“It’s inspired by the quarry workers from the quarry outside Aberdeen,” said Martin.“I wanted to do something that reflects the city and the history of the town.”
Aberdeen’s famous granite isn’t its usual grey colour in Martin’s painting – he wanted it to represent the pop of colour Aberdonians and local businesses bring to the otherwise grey city.
