Martin Wall

Creative Director - Co-Founder (MA Performance & Culture)

I am endlessly fascinated by the power of ‘image’ in contemporary culture and have the greatest respect for stylists from the worlds of fashion, film and music – who shape the way we see the world and help us embrace our unique ability to expand and challenge the way we express ourselves and the voice we gain by playing with our own image and the image of others.

My role as Creative Director allows me to be an active part of stylists’ creative journey – which I see as a great honour!
