Bolt Barbers presents Matt Larson! Please come by and see Matt’s incredible artwork! It is on view from February 10th–March 10th.
Born 1982 in Michigan. Unremarkable. Attended Michigan State University and received a BFA in Painting from RMCAD 2006. My art is conceived in many different ways. As a result, it has no singular ambition. 20-time Guinness World Record applicant. Sometimes I turn things inside-out and will now and then nail a balloon to the wall. As a boy, I spent countless nights as a lighthouse attendant off the Nova Scotia coast. During these long, foggy, pensive nights, I felt nothing.
My art is often the product of the dissapointment I felt.
I was also Time magazine’s 2006 Person of the Year. As well as 7 time Newbery Award winning reader 1988,1989,1990,1991,1992,1993, 2002…respectively… Lincoln: A Photobiography by Russell Freedman, Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices by Paul Fleischman, Number the Stars by Lois Lowry, Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli, Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Missing May by Cynthia Rylant, A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park. Once shook Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s hand.
