About Matt Hintz
Matt is an artist from Minnesota, living in the outer suburbs surrounding Minneapolis. Having the privilege of living in an area dedicated to the arts has been a major help getting into the art scene.
Taking influences from other creative fields such as tattooing, graffiti, and music/musicians has become a major inspiration to his work. The most recent series of works has been acrylic paintings on vinyl records themed around music, be it an artist, a theme song, a lyric, or just a visual representation or music video. This will become more prevalent in displays at art shows to come.
Works of Matt's have been on display in various local entities, such as both the Downtown and Seward Pizza Luc'e, and multiple showings at the Pancakes & Booze art shows held at the Skyway Theater. Lakeville Art Festival also named him best in show for 2015.
As an emerging artist Matt became an assistant to Shane Anderson of Anderson Illustrations. They've worked on various projects and murals together. Some include: the first floor hallway of Calhoun Square in Uptown, a large group and charity mural for the Mall of America (still parts of it up currently in the new wing), and a mural with kids on their school in a small village in Thailand.
