Matt Leines

MATT LEINES GREW UP IN NEW JERSEY AND ATTENDED THE RHODE ISLAND SCHOOL OF DESIGN.

HIS WORK DRAWS INFLUENCES FROM HERMETIC SCIENCES TO HULK HOGAN AND HARALD HARDRADA TO HE-MAN. HE DRAWS PICTURES THAT DEPICT THE CULTURE AND CONFLICTS OF A FANTASY WORLD INHABITED BY MUSTACHED MEN, WILD BEASTS, AND LIVING ARCHITECTURE. LEINES PRESENTS HIMSELF AS AN INSIDER IN AN OUTSIDER'S WORLD, WHERE HE SERVES AS BOTH CREATOR AND NARRATOR. THE EMPHATICALLY METICULOUS LINES SPEAK TO A PRIMITIVE, YET UNDENIABLY MODERN AESTHETIC. LEINES' WORK HAS BEEN SHOWN ACROSS THE UNITED STATES, INCLUDING DEITCH PROJECTS, NYC, AS WELL AS ATHENS, GREECE AND TOKYO, JAPAN.
