Martin Gale was born in Worcester, England, and moved to Ireland at a young age. He studied at the National College of Art and Design. His work generally responds to the contemporary Irish landscape, and how people interact with it. His paintings often create a dark commentary on rural life in modern Ireland. Gale paints in a realist manner, employing both oils and watercolour. In printmaking he uses etchings. Martin Gale represented Ireland at the XI Biennale de Paris in 1980, and has represented Ireland numerous times internationally, as well as having retrospectives and exhibitions at home.
