Matt Duffin is an amazing illustrator and artist born in 1968. He currently resides in Northern California with his wife and two children. He received his Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Houston. He never practiced as an architect, choosing instead to become an artist. Art was the best way for him to express his feelings, thoughts and emotions. Through art, he found that he could easily combine his tendency toward right angles and perspective drawing with the more human themes of irony and solitude. In the past several years, Duffin’s work has received noteworthy critical recognition from several museum curators and private collectors of national acclaim. Matt has tried different mediums, from charcoal to encaustic wax, but he continues to dwell in the realm of dark recess and stark contrasts.
