dark art that gives a voice to those who cannot speak.
my name is matthew and since I was young I had a deep connection to nature and it’s inhabitants.
the dark illustrations I create invite people into my world of emotions and thoughts.
I want to create art that people can relate to but in an odd way. I want to reach out to the deepest parts we all buried inside of us, because no one wanted to get to know more about them. I want people to know, that it is ok to feel bad and to talk about stuff no one really likes to talk about.
I loved drawing ever since I can remember. my parents always encouraged me and my siblings to develop our skills so drawing became one of my greatest passions and something I wanted to do as a living.
when I started drawing macabre stuff in my very young ages my mother wasn’t amused at all about it. she threw away my works, not because she wanted to be a bad parent, but she was kinda worried and thought she’d be helping this way. it didn’t really help though, I just loved drawing all the dark stuff and couldn’t stop from doing so, so I decided to hide my drawings from that point on.
time passed by and when I was 16 I started to lose interest in drawing but developed a new passion for music. I started my own band and played on several events for some years. I wanted to be a musician so bad, but it didn’t work out unfortunately.
after giving up my band I didn’t have any goals for the first time in my life. I knew I wanted to do something creative, but I couldn’t find the fire that made me keep going anymore. I lost all my passion and absolutely didn’t know what to do.
until I discovered digital art in 2019. I started drawing again and my old passion sparked up inside of me as it was never gone. I lost most of my skills of course, because I barely drew for ten long years, but it didn’t stop me from enjoying it at all.
I decided to start sharing my art on social media and the support I got gave me back an old friend of mine: the wish to make a living out of my art.
in january 2021 I started this journey. and I am so thankful to all of You who gave me back my old fire.
thank You from the bottom of my (he)art
