Street-Inspired Art by Matt Stewart.

Indian Street Inspired Art

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m infatuated with street art. I’ve blogged about it a few times because I simply can’t get enough of the bold designs in this style. When I came across Brisbane artist Matt Stewart’s work online, it goes without saying that I had a sort of conniption – in the best way possible, of course!

Though Matt’s work is distinctly street art-inspired, it would be wrong of me to place it solely in this genre.

“To be honest, it’s a really hard thing to describe my style of artwork to people,” Matt tells me. ย “When I get the question at events of ‘what to you do for a living?’, I find it easier to whip out my phone and show them pics of my art rather than trying to describe it”.

Part contemporary fine art, part pop art and with an undeniable street vibe, Matt’s work is some of the most breathtaking I’ve seen in a while. With influences that come from architecture, fashion, branding, marketing and painting itself, his art is created using a variety of tools; aerosols, acrylic paint and “charcoal, ink pens, pencils, watercolours…all depending on what particular piece I am working on”.

The 35-year old Teneriffe local splits his timeย between illustration work, canvas pieces and both private and corporate mural painting work; a balance that Matt says is perfect because they bounce off one another. He also says his main inspiration is his fiancee Anna, which is all a bit warm and fuzzy!

A few months off launching a complete clothing label (bring it on!) and with art-clad iPhone cases selling via The Dairy, Matt also sells his work directly through his website, but is soon to have a store on Down That Little Lane (so keep your eyes peeled!). This is one Creative that is really making waves.

      Totally agree Jane! I love the street vibe of them, but I still feel like they’d work in a lot of interior schemes.
