Matt Held
ARTIST STATEMENT

Matt Held is a figurative painter living in Brooklyn, where he turns out paintings in a space as large as your average walk-in closet. His project "I’ll have my portrait painted by Matt Held" gained a lot of visibility from art bloggers and the mainstream media alike in 2009/2010 for its blending of social media and traditional portraiture. He’s currently working on a series of comics based on status updates and the ridiculous comments they receive as well as another project he won’t talk about unless you have top secret clearance.
