ABOUT THE ARTIST
"Matt Pectol is a local artist residing in Southern Utah where he draws inspiration from the surrounding area’s stunning landscape. He is mostly influenced by the Post-Impressionist movement, especially the works of Cezanne, Gauguin, and Van Gogh.
Matt primarily enjoys working in oil paint but also loves to use pastels and watercolors. He loves the freedom of creating art and never knows how one of his pieces will turn out. Currently, Matt has been inspired by exploring the National Parks in Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and California.
Lately, Matt has been using a new method of painting by combining Indian black ink with oil paint. First, he starts by drawing out a composition with the ink and then paints with the oils to create a final work of art. This method creates a high visual contrast experience for the viewer."
