Matteart







Matte Stephens is the artist that creates these cool and colourful prints. Based in Portland, Oregon, he does all of the original paintings in gouache (which is kind of like watercolour paint, only more heavily pigmented and opaque). They remind me so much of growing up in the 70's. It's partly the colours, and partly the fact that they kind of remind me of Dr. Seus... Speaking of Dr. Seus, it's his birthday today, so Happy Birthday Dr. Seus!
This art is so fun and modern, it would be great in a mid century modern living room, or a really cool kids room.
