Matte Stephens Vintage Revisited

October 7, 2010

A lover of old English films like The Ladykillers and Kind Hearts and Coronets,

Portland based Matte Stephens has never had a regular day job in his life !

Fresh from high school, Matte launched himself into a career of painting and

trying to get his work exhibited in local galleries and later online, being one of the

early contributors to Ebay.

Now  with more than 16 years as a commercial artist behind him, his retro-styled work

sells internationally and through a number of online galleries and his blog.

You can find that you slowly fall in love with his humorous, yet slightly crazy style.

Great colours too.

There’s a great interview with the young man on Inspired Outsiders site here.
