Santa Monica, USA
Matthew Heller (b. 1974) was raised in both Boston, MA and Santa Monica, CA. He studied at UCSB followed by a short lived profession in computer animation and a few years exploring film making. Not without trying Heller searched for something else he could do rather than turning his passion for art into a career. Heller says, “making art is a special thing to do but sharing art is what I need to do” and thus his focus on art as a profession began. Heller describes his style of art as minimal but with heart, using traditional materials and ideas in unexpected ways. Heller is inspired by art and design that is honest, more smart than clever.
