About the Artist
Born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida, Matthew has always been enthusiastic about visual story-telling. He studied art at both Tallahassee Community College and Florida State University and graduated in the summer of 2016 with a BA in Studio Art and Art History.
My artwork explores the stories inspired me since childhood. In my work I re-imagine the visceral, cerebral, and weird nature of the escapist narratives that pervade our culture.
My current work is a culmination of my many passions; classic literature, graphic novels, movies, mythology, post-nuclear monstrosities, and Lovecraftian-cosmic beings. Curiosity, and fear of the unknown has driven humanity throughout history to create these stories in an attempt to explain the world around them. My work captures some of that childlike curiosity and fear, and reassembles it into graphic novel inspired sequences.
