Matt Haffner – Reviewers Bio

Matt Haffner is a mixed-media artist whose gritty and aesthetically graphic artworks range from large-scale installations to diminutive works on paper. His urban and mythological themed works are made from combinations of humble materials including; wheat-pasted paper, cardboard, newsprint, salvaged street signs, rusted metal, and spray paint that pay homage to his roots as a street artist and to his interest in the city’s periphery. He often combines his drawings with video projections and photographs that explore ideas about multilayered vision and investigate the dynamic between the static and moving image.

Matt’s works are in a variety of public and private regional, national, and international collections. He has won countless awards and grants in support of his work, including a National Endowment for the Arts Project Award, MOCA Georgia’s prestigious Working Artist Award, and a Forward Arts Foundation Award.
