I know nothing as been posted in a long time. Just been preoccupied. I just came back from a trip from Sleepy Hollow and am currently in negotiations with a gallery
Some exciting news with my U.S friends. I'm currently signing an agreement with a gallery in Texas
Made it into Finals for the Penny Dreadful fan-art contest - but it's for U.S citizens only :/


ichabod1799's Profile Picture
Matt Wood
Artist | Professional | Varied
From Melbourne, Australia.
Studied Visual Arts, Illustration & Design, Web Design and PHP and Permaculture
Lived in Brasov, Romania for 2 months doing volunteer teaching.
Travelled California US.
Been exhibiting the past 9 years.
Worked in a gallery, currently working as a freelance in Graphic design and webdesign and development.
Started a partnership business recently.

Art wise: Just like trying new things all the time. Still developing style after all these years. I think my style leads more towards atmospheric mood setting and dark settings.

I love horror movies and books.
Been playing piano the past 10 years. I think I'm pretty damn good at it.

I'm too busy to even make my own website right now (for the past however many years)

I think I'm going to take a bit of a hiatus to help redevelop and redefine myself as an artist. I will still be making more work but time to take it a little more seriously. I've still got some new paintings I've done that I'm looking forward to sharing soon. Occasionally I might post stuff along my journey - but it's not like I post much here lately anyway. Or that anyone cares anyway.

I'm not taking a hiatus from art. It's something that I'm always constantly thinking about and creating. I'm more or less taking a hiatus from social media (including deviantart) so I can focus more and hone in on growing further as  an artist.

After looking at alot of my work lately I can see it's become stunted and stale, that I really can pull my thumb out and do better.
