My current creative crush is Brisbane based artist Matt Stewart.
Matt is a self-taught artist that creates amazing street art style works using a combination of mediums from aerosol cans, acrylics, charcoal and pencil. All his works are edgy and raw, but I love the pops of bright colours he brings to some of his pieces!
Matt’s artworks have now morphed into various other incarnations, he has designed a series of wallpaper patterns for Wallpaper Republic, smartphone covers for The Dairy, or you may spot one of his many corporate murals around Queensland in places such as NOVA 106.9 FM Brisbane or the Novotel Brisbane to name just a few. Impressive stuff!
I personally discovered Matt’s work through Fenton & Fenton, who stock some of his large artworks as part of their curated collection. I just LOVE that first Indian girl artwork!
