ART & FASHION: MATT WISNIEWSKI

MATT WISNIEWSKI, IS A YOUNG AMERICAN VISUAL ARTIST WHO LIVES AND WORKS IN NEW YORK. MATT IN HIS CAREER HAS CREATED COLLAGES COMBINING VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPHY AND THE CONTEMPORARY ART TO CREATE SURREAL PORTRAITS

Experimenting with different artistic media during his working career, Matt has been fascinated by the creative images on the web from which he drew inspiration for the creation of his magnificent visual works. Wisniewski has created a particularly successful interaction superimposing the portraits: drawings, flowers, landscapes and splashes of color that bring visual art to a new step of vision.

The artist for his realisations prefers the use of graphics programs like Photoshop than the use of the canonical tools of the craft. A fascinating work, with an evocative and magical atmosphere created by the union of the innovative natural elements on the bodies of the figures represented.

“Art does not reproduce what is visible, but makes visible what is not always so.” (Paul Klee)

The combinations of collages speaking with surfaces and textures that are each time different, in a great union of actualized items in unique and sometimes unsettling portraits.
