The Face behind the skin. Acrylic on Canvas (2010)
I hate Giraffes (2012)
Matthew Knight was born in Cambridge, England and now is living and working in sunny Belfast, Ireland. Over the years he met the oddest and most interes…ting characters, seen and experienced some bizarre sights, been bombarded with way too many different beliefs and ideals, and to end it all eaten and smelt God knows what. Frankly its confusing, chaotic and complicated trying to make sense of it all. All of these experiences go into his paintings. His characters and scenes are bursting with crazy colours and complicated detail drawing influences from all sorts of artistic disciplines, Islamic, Celtic, Aboriginal, Pointillism, Lowbrow, Comics, etc… He works mostly in Acrylic with collage on all sorts of found surfaces. Matthew is an up and coming artist to watch out for.
Michael Shapcott is a full-time artist based in central Connecticut. He says that art is his life, so it makes sense that he has launched a Kickstarter project to help him draw a portrait a day for 365 days — using his backers as his subjects. For those of us that are camera shy, rewards also include beautiful prints, painting tutorials, or a peek into the creative process via live video feed. Pretty neat!

The Fifth Channel | Acrylic on wood | 32x42” | 2011
I’m a new painter. Circumstances aligned in such a way during my last year at University, which allowed for much personal growth. The volume of painting I’ve produced in the last two years has resulted in a few distinguished, stand-alone pieces. They are still relevant as transitional- not coinciding with older or newer work.
