About Matthew James

Michelangelo inspired me to paint. I know this sounds cliché, but the moment I saw a movie about him painting the Sistine Chapel, I was hooked; and I didn´t even have to see the real Sistine Chapel! Not only was I inspired by his painting but also his ability to carve statues that looked more real than human beings themselves. Needless to say, once I found my cheap paint set at Ocean State Job Lot, I became more interested in art other than just drawing my favorite comic book heroes or Disney characters.

I paint for many reasons. I find that art helps me release all of the creative energy I have built up inside. When people look at my art, I definitely want them to enjoy it and hope it makes them happy if not for only a few seconds.

Other art inspires me but mostly the inspiration comes from my everyday surroundings such as a house, landscape or person. Often times the inspiration comes from cherry picking different ideas to create something new; I definitely love to paint images that no one has ever seen before.

I am an abstract artist and I love to make vibrant paintings with strong dark lines toppling over bright colors; I call this stain glass painting. I studied art at a local community college a few years back which is where I learned to smooth out my rough edges and develop my own unique style.

I sincerely hope you love my art as much as I enjoyed painting it!

Thanks for the visit!

Matt
