About the Artist

"Modern, Modern Advanced, & High Art Painter || Artist" Matthew Zedler (snapshot). 

Being from a European family (German || Swiss || French), I came into this world surrounded by people with great passions (and careers) in the fine arts. Given my surrounding family, I was able to discover the importance of movements like the "Bauhaus" and other modern and metaphysical art theory early on. I am passionate about working from and evolving these wonderful art theories and equally creating brand new art forms.

Note to Viewers:  As you peruse some of my artwork today, please keep in mind that this site is but a snapshot of the over 3,000 paintings and sketches completed since the late 1990's. On this site, you will see an immensely wide range in both style and artistic execution. I have studied and worked across many modern art forms over the past two decades. More than anything else, it is my desire to show within these few pages an innate ability to devise, extract, and create virtually anything I visualize in my mind.

Linear-Geometric Composition & Abstraction
