If anyone can make decayed objects look like a work of art, it's definitely Martin Ouellette.

Inspired by decomposed and worn-out objects such as nails and magazines, Martin Ouellette paints abstract artworks based on those very interests. The paintings are close-ups of various objects in its natural state, only the colors are more vibrant. The way the colors blend together gives Oulette's work a smooth aesthetic, making the objects featured look more appealing and elegant.
