Featured Etsy Merchant: Matte Stephens, Artist Extraordinaire
Some people are so talented, they just make you sick. Or envious. Or just plain bored with whatever it is you're currently doing that's not quite so groovy. The world is full of people like this. But there's always room for one more.
Welcome, Matte Stephens!
Matte is a young artist from Alabama who has a flair for the whimsical. He has been painting for a living for the last 12 years, drawing influences from all things modern, including Charles Eames, George Nelson, and Irving Harper. His work can be found in various galleries and art shows in NYC and throughout the country.
As of Friday morning, he had sold 715 pieces of his gorgeous art through his Etsy store. I'm hoping that it's 716 soon, cos I'd really like someone to get me something from there. Maybe 'the giant suburban bear print'. I really like the one pictured above, 'the giant suburban bear visits nyc'. The 'nyc print' is also very nice. Or, if you were feeling generous, perhaps the 'shoe painting original'.
Either way, go take a look at his wonderful work, and if you don't get something for me, get something for yourself. We're going to be hearing more about Matte Stephens, I'm sure.
