The Martel gallery was born in 2008 with the desire to defend artists who share the same ambition: to explore new territories and break down the boundaries that separate the various modes of expression (illustration, painting, comics, animation ...). It is one of the very first galleries to claim the importance of comics and to promote them in its exhibitions as an art form in its own right. Anxious to represent the richness and diversity of the graphic arts, the Martel gallery has not only supported internationally renowned artists (such as Art Spiegelman, Tomi Ungerer, Robert Crumb and Lorenzo Mattotti), but has also endeavored to give a place to young artists (including Brecht Evens, Brecht Vanderbroucke and Yann Kebbi). With an ever stronger identity in the field of contemporary drawing, the Martel gallery will inaugurate in 2023 the opening of a new exhibition space in the Ixelles district of Brussels, a major capital of contemporary art.
