Matt Fagan's Profile
POP ART FOR DORKS:
I am an artist from southern Oregon, transplanted to the great Midwest.
Drawing and painting since childhood, I've taken detours into zines, coloring books, mask-making, and even received an MFA in writing!
In recent years I got back into painting, starting with a series called "Children Dressed as Monsters". That series has helped to reinforce the fact that all of my disparate artistic pursuits seem to be intertwined - writing a novel about the consequences of identity, painting children who wear disguises, sculpting giant masks, and painting self-portraits that re-cast the subject in different roles all seem to be ways of exploring similar concerns and obsessions.
I'm also a great fan…
