Matte Stephens Whimsical Art!

Matte Stephens is a 36 year old who lives in upstate New York. He loves modern design and is very truly inspired by anything by Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, Gerorge Nelso and Irving Harper. He also loves artists Ben Shahn and Paul Kee.
He has been very busy and has had the wonderful opportunity to do work for: Herman Miller, American Express, IBM, Disney, Modern Twist and many, many others.

Matte has also had art shows all over creation and you can find original work by him at both Jonathan Adler and Velocity Art and Design.
Gouache is his medium of choice and those that have worked with it before, know that it's a great result, but not exactly the easiest to use.

 In addition to his work at Jonathan Adler and Velocity, you can also purchase work of his on etsy.

 While there are some original paintings and a few scupltures, most are prints, which are all printed on archival photo rag 300gsm matte paper. Each print is titled, numbered and signed and shipped in a protective sleeve and shipped priority mail.

Random Stuff...

So, I'm back. Sorry I have been neglecting the blog as of late, but I've been extremely busy with life and it's entrapments, both good and bad. Over the past few weeks, I have found myself being inspired by odd shapes and curious proportions. It is October after all, which just so happens to be my favorite month of the year. For me, it's automatic, there's just something in the air. Anyhoo, found these pics interesting for the thoughts they provoke and imagery in general. Hope you enjoy!
