Artist info

Matth Velvet

Matth Velvet began painting walls in the early 2000s in western France. The Atlantic, maritime life, and port spaces permeate his first artistic research. As a passionate illustrator,  he then began to naturally turn his attention to applied arts, in addition to his assiduous practice of graffiti. Gradually he will leave the aerosol for acrylic paint and oil, which will grant him greater control of the colors and their interaction. His painting begins to become mainly figurative. He paints a colorful but disenchanted world.  Dreamlike and ordinary. Fictional and effective.A world where characters, objects, constructions, species, and elements are only floating, careless and absurd presences (whose existence is superfluous, not justified by an end). Placing himself as a distant observer, he paints the artificial and the accessory, deflecting reality to avoid voidness and meaninglessness. While having a narrative dimension, Velvet selects, interprets, and tries to appropriate what the time allows him to document, creating compositions that also tell his personal story. Author of numerous large-scale murals and exhibitions in France and abroad, he now lives and works in Bordeaux.

This print has been produced during the artist’s residency at Varsi Art&Lab.

“I learned a lot during these 12 days spent in Rome. First of all about the screen printing techniques, which I knew only superficially, and of which I perceive now a little better the possibilities thanks to 56FILI (Arturo Amitrano) who knew how to guide me.

The fact of conceiving images in a more ‘direct’ way, with reduced colors and more essential forms, will have an influence on my painting in general, I am sure.

The works produced during this residency are about a synthetic representation of spaces and the presences that occupy them. They are the fruit of reflections carried out for a long time, and prefigure my paintings to come.”
