Hello, My name is Matt Gruber. I have been drawing and making thingsfor as long as I can remember. I mostly draw for myself exploring themes of humor, absurdity, violence and sexuality. I am able to let my imagination run wild on paper. I mostly use a stream of consciousness method. The drawing evolves as I work on it and I add things that I think are funny or look cool.
I began woodworking in 2010, and started my own picture framing business in 2014. Working hands on with other artists and gallery owners has been a great way for me to make a living in fine arts.
I still aspire to be a working artist, who can make a living from selling drawings and paintings. Maybe someday I will even pay back my student loans from grad school. Until then I will continue to pump out custom picture frames and artist panels with a smile on my face.
I hope you enjoyed the show, and if you ever need framing done, or something to paint on, please let me know. J
