Matthew Robertson is a fine artist and freelance illustrator who received his BFA in illustration from the Academy of Art University. In 2010, his mural design was chosen to adorn the side of the historic O’Farrell Theater on Polk Street near Geary Boulevard in San Francisco.
A number of the smaller works showcased here are taken from his series Transmigration. All of these pieces are created using repurposed brown paper bags from local grocery stores and are displayed in recycled frames.
He is currently working on creating imagery that combines elements of both realism and abstraction on the same picture plane.
The artist is an accomplished portrait painter and welcomes portraiture and commissioned work.
