ARTIST: MATTHEW BOURNE
LOCATION: Kellyville - Western Sydney
What is the medium you most like to work in?
I love working with Acrylic, oils, stencil, Artliner, and inks.
What are your thoughts about the medium of the paste-up?
The Paste up is an awesome medium. Anything can be your canvas really. Its a great way to show the world your style and communicate it through your art anywhere you want. It also has that underground feel which is really unique to the paste up.
Tell us about your studio/where you make your art.
I have a little studio at home. It's where everything gets created. There's piles of paint, paper, pens, artwork all the stuff you would expect in a studio, controlled chaos. Right now it's a complete mess, the carpets need ripping up cause there's so much paint build up over the years.
What will you be sending us for this year's PASTE MODERNISM?
I'll be sending 4 pieces of work. There typically my style right now. I've got a graphic design background but as a kid loved everything cartoons, comic and cars. I love the old school muscle cars. So some of my work has been evolving around that. Creating my our style. Also I have sent in a political piece you can make your own mind up about that.
What other projects/exhibitions/events are coming up for you soon?
I've been in plenty of group shows this year, met heaps of rad people and it blows my mind how the art community come together to just rock out and have some fun. Future projects, I'm really just digging my art creating and drawing as much as I can. I've been busy with submissions and commissions before the holidays. I would love to have a show some time soon.
