Martinas has been trained by his father Mindaugas Andrius who is also a landscape painter.

They both share a studio/gallery space in Jamaica Plain and regularly show their work together as a father and son duo. Mindaugas mostly paints on larger-medium size format and Martinas paints on medium-small sized paintings. The main body of work is inspired from locations on the North Shore, South Shore, and Cape Cod loactions. Focusing in specific towns within Newburyport, Plum Island, Salisbury, Crane Beach, Sandwich, Barnstable, Orleans, Truro, and Provincetown all within the State of Massachusetts.
Art represents a feeling, mood, expression, a scene of reality within pigment of color. The landscapes are fantasies of an existing location and a mood that represents a place of meditation, and a scene of isolation from the surrounding environment.
