Matt W. Moore (born 1980) American Artist
Aerosol artist and Graphic designer, talking about colors, geometry, forms, interactivity… So he is moving from a direction to another, working on canvas, murals, and design project.
All his work doesn’t speak to me as much as his murals which confer to him a ‘geometrical poetry’.
Matt’s background was in action board sports and the action art of graffiti, each with their core value of speed, do-it-yourself ethic, enthusiasm for new terrain, and sheer fun of collaboration. Over the past decade, he’s applied those principles to his bold, graphic aesthetic in media both analog and digital, for projects both personal and commercial. Cross-pollinating between disciplines allows him to constantly refresh his perspective and produce unique work. Applying his vision to new surfaces or in collaboration with others always proves his credo.
Many of Matt’s most memorable projects have been at the intersection of art and design, and often involve substantial collaborative processes. Leaving himself open to the inspiration of new places, materials, and looming deadlines, for the majority of his projects with art galleries, he arrives to the venue empty-handed, creating the entire body of work as a residency on-site, whether in Paris, São Paulo, or Cincinnati, and always with accompanying outdoor murals and street paintings.
