Matthew Evans is an Abstract neo-expressionist painter from Cardiff, Wales. Also known as Snowskull, Matthew chose the name from a Gregory Corso poem: “I feel the contrast between the purity of the snow and the morbidness of the skull combined shows the light and the darkness of my work.” Colour and poetry are two important elements in Matthew’s work, his painting is often a dreamscape, combining colour, composition and symbolism. For him, the imagination is more powerful than knowledge, and he expresses himself through colour “the language of art”: “Rather than painting what is in front of me, I like to paint my own landscapes and realities”.
This month sees the launch of a brand new SnowSkull project – an enriched arts project comprising of a website and a music compilation featuring some of the most innovative and exciting new electronic music producers from Wales’ burgeoning music scene’s – the two components live together under the name “All Great Thoughts Are Conceived By Walking”, that can be experienced at SnowSkullart.com. The website pulls together all of SnowSkull’s creative output into one place: a treasure chest stuffed full of paintings and sketches, all reachable by clicking on different parts of the giant, sprawling painting that is the heart of the All Great Thoughts Are Conceived By Walking project. “The painting is a journey of progression”, explains SnowSkull, “and it utilises all the techniques I’ve learnt from day one up until this point to symbolize that”.
Clicking through the different parts of the painting reveals the depth and extent of SnowSkull’s creative talents. As well as his own solo paintings, there is the collaborative work with visual artist Jack Hardwicke (cf. previous posts) whose combined work under the Sleepwalk Art Collective guise/moniker offers a unique synergy of styles. Matthew can be found with updated posts on his Website, SoudCloud, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.
