Pen on paper
Jonathan Matas was born in Seattle. He has been drawing and painting his whole life without ever stopping. Among his many visuals inspirations have been Northwest Coast Indigenous Arts, hip hop and graffiti, Buddhist arts, and the modern masters such as Picasso and Miro. Matas's work explores the possibilities of spontaneity, with an emphasis on experimentation with color and worlds of detail. He maintains a nomadic lifestyle and currently resides in India.
