Martin Welch, The Original "Crab Man"

I started painting crabs in May of 2002.

The paintings of the crabs and seafood began with a fish on a board, and around 
the same time a dysfunctional  family called "The Sinclairs"  made their 
appearance.  

The paintings of the crabs and the fish started out as a type of Sumi painting with 
colors, inspired by cubism.  I used bright colors and palette knife to depict the 
crabs and give them the shape and vibrant look.
