Lives and works Warrnambool, Victoria

Enamoured with the vibrant world that surrounds him, Matthew Clarke paints his subjects with an unquestionable spontaneity and conviction.

Matthew Clarke likes to paint to make people feel happy. Matthew has been drawing ever since he can remember. His life as an artist started in 2005 when he commenced studying Art, Craft and Design at South West TAFE Victoria. Matthew paints with acrylic paint on linen and plywood wallaby sculptures where his unique sense of shape, colour and proportions flows into the works. He makes linocuts with his long term mentor Glenn Morgan supporting him with printing the lino blocks. In the last few years Matthew has taken up drawing on paper with a fine liner pen and using ink and acrylic washes on the works. His largest drawing is 2.4m x 1.2m and his smallest works are postcard size.
