"Art Show" Deep Blue Sea
Combining inspiration drawn from natural landscapes and urban environments alike, Matt Bailey’s works of figurative and abstract art have a distinctive graphic signature style. Using an array of mix mediums – from aerosol and acrylic, to oil and alcohol, his art comes to life on canvases and mural walls.
From early childhood years watching his father experiment and progress as an oil painter at the family home in Truro, Nova Scotia, Matt has long been intrigued by the visual arts. With strong roots set in the east and an ever-growing sketchbook, a desire for exploration and adventure drew Matt west to experience Canada’s iconic Whistler village and accompanying mountain culture. Amongst the Rockies, Matt channeled a growing artistic energy into designing a collection of urban apparel. Moving beyond cotton and screen-printing, he returned to the east with a renewed approach which has manifested itself as a collection of work that demonstrates unrestricted expression and cohesive momentum.
