Martin Whist is an accomplished artist and production designer. Whist was represented by Catriona Jeffreys Gallery in Vancouver and Acme Gallery in Los Angeles in the late 1990’s and into the early 2000s before choosing to pursue his art privately while applying his energy to work in the film industry. Starting as a prop maker Whist’s creative vision and talents saw him develop into an accomplished Art Director and Production Designer on independent and major motion pictures. Nearly 20 years after withdrawing from the public art scene, Whist now seeks to move back into the current public art dialogue while maintaining his career in cinema.
Whist began his undergraduate education at Ontario College of Art and then Emily Carr College of Art. He earned his Masters in Fine Arts from Claremont Graduate University, graduating in 1992. He currently splits his time between Pasadena, California and Vancouver, Canada.
