Whether painting the Native Americans in a dramatic, picturesque setting or the working cowboy peacefully on the range, Martin Grelle captures the spirit, beauty, and vastness of the West in his historically-accurate, compelling images. Grelle is proud of his Native American ancestry and studies diligently to portray their culture accurately and sensitively. The artist also has an intimate knowledge of the cowboy’s way of life; each year he enjoys the Cowboy Artists of America’s (CAA) trail ride and spends time occasionally working cattle with local friends. Grelle has the incredible ability to take the most mundane, daily tasks of his subjects and elevate them to a new level in each painting.
Grelle was born just a few miles from the small, Central Texas town of Clifton, which he calls home today. This beautiful and historic area has become a mecca for artists, which has always kept his heart close to the land of his ancestors. Many of Grelle’s closest friends are artists. Happy hours of camaraderie are spent gathering to look at each other’s work, exchanging ideas, and enjoying everyone’s company. Grelle treasures this feeling of community and the opportunities he is afforded living in such a creative environment.
The artist’s talents were evident as a child and he began painting at an early age. Luckily for the budding painter, acclaimed Western artists James Boren and Melvin Warren had settled in the same area while he was in school. With such excellent guidance from these masters, a full-time artist was born in his early twenties. Grelle has studied and traveled widely to seek material and subject matter for his outstanding paintings of the American West. Working primarily in oils on canvas, the artist’s figures and landscape become one in a painterly style rich in vibrant color and narrative
