Artist: Matt SmithHe/Him/His

Aritistic Discipline: Visual, Words

Matt Smith is a multidisciplinary visual artist residing in Spokane. His main passion lies in painting, but can never do one thing for too long without experimenting and moving into a new direction. Be it subject matter, medium, scale, style, or any combination of these elements, he aims to experience the thrill of the new. He believes the real fruit of creating art is in the basis of invention (combining old elements in new ways to make something unique). He is currently creating large-scale indoor installation works and murals throughout the NW.
