Guest Post: Abstract Artworks by Matt Maust
We have recently featured the work of Oklahoma-based artist Nathan Yoder here on The Grid and today he’s back with a guest post featuring one of his favourite artists, Matt Maust:
“I feel like Matt Maust is a modern day Picasso or probably more accurately a modern day Jean-Michel Basquiat. I’ve never gotten into abstract work much, but the way that Maust blends typography with imagery is brilliant. Following him on instagram, I probably spend the most time out of anyone else I follow, starting at his pieces trying to figure out how he made it work. And also what the heck he is saying in his captions. I feel like his captions are just as abstract as his artwork.
In addition to being an incredible artist, he’s also the bass player for the Cold War Kids, one of my favorite bands. He does all of their artwork and it totally fits their sound.”
