From my mind to your wall.
My name is Matthew Young, and I am a lifelong artist of all sorts. A graduate of Vancouver Film School’s 3D Animation and Visual Effects program in the year 2000, I have dabbled across many mediums and methods. From 3D animation in Hollywood movies, to live music, acrylic collage, graphic design, teaching animation, video editing for documentaries, 2D animated short films to name a few. I have lived, and continue to live, an artist's life, full of success and failures, triumphs and setbacks, learning experiences and the opportunity to bestow that knowledge unto others.
I started doing collage in 2008, after realizing I had so many old magazines, comic books, CD album covers and the like that were piled up in boxes, wasting away. I started to chop up the paper and attempt to breathe new life into the contents in the ensuing compositions. It wasn't long before my work room looked like a confetti bomb had exploded, and people were telling me they enjoyed my work, which led me to do more, and I haven’t looked back since.
All prints are from images photographed from a Sony Alpha A7R IV 61 megapixel camera, from a tripod, using a 3 point lighting system, delivering professional quality details and color reproduction. Many originals of these prints are available for purchase, and I am available to do commissioned work when possible. Use the contact page for proposals and questions.
Thank you for visiting my little store! Sharing it with others is always appreciated as is any purchases made. From my mind to your wall, Thank you. -Matthew Young
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
So much inspiration in the world! If I had to choose one artist I would say Paul Horiuchi. Most of my inspiration is from both nature and mankind's ability to create and inhabit this world.
Acrylic gels, paints and a whole lot of chopped up paper. I try and measure my compositions to achieve clean, natural ratios when I can. Trial and error.
I worked as an animator doin pre-visualization on feature film 'Charlotte's Web' in 2006.
