MWM Graphics Shows Parallel Universe Via POP Gallery in Sao Paulo, Brazil
An ambitious creative spirit, MWM (Matt W. Moore) has traveled to Sao Paulo for one month to prepare, from scratch, for his first South American Solo-Exhibition. He arrived with no art, no supplies, and no firm plan for this new series of canvas paintings. The ideas for the artworks have actualized while processing time spent absorbing Brazilian Culture, exploring this Mega-City, the vibrant colors, the exaggerated geometry, and the diverse architecture of Sao Paulo.
MWM's "Parallel Universe" Series explores and celebrates the convergence of his dedication to various disciplines of design and art. The paintings were created entirely with spray paint, one of Matt's favorite mediums. But, the designs are very clean, and appear almost digital in their precise details and craft. An honest, analog attempt to achieve the same depth and abstract geometry of his digital "Vectorfunk" style. The goal with each work is to have the viewers eye fall into the piece and get lost in the optical illusions, trying to figure out what is up, down, left, and right. Welcome to the Jungle!
"It was a ton of fun! Check out the photos of: the Art, the Mega-Mural, and my iPhone Photos from exploring." - Matt Moore
