Martin Welch Art

A few years ago I purchased two original paintings by local artist, Martin Welch. I just love the colors and organic nature of his works of art. I oooooh & aaaaaah every time I see his artwork displayed at local galleries or shoppes along Royal Street.

Welch sold everything he owned at age 44 and studied painting. Many years later, his red, gold, and turquoise crustacean paintings are sought after by collectors all over the South and the United States.

Known for his crab, shrimp, fish, and oyster paintings, Welch is also keen on painting original, iconic New Orleans art pieces on media such as canvas or wood and recycled items.

Prices for his art pieces range from $175.00 for a 6 x 12” piece to $5200.00 for a 48 x 72” piece.
Check out his website:
Martin Welch art, y’all!


  1. Love these! Wouldn't mind owning one myself! :)

  2. Beautiful! You'd think that Pictures of Seafood would all start to look the same! Surprise!

  3. I'm excited to see these in person this weekend!

  4. My room mate has 3 Martin Welch seafood paintings that she is selling if anyone is interested I will let her know. (
