Matt Moore.

“I have two different studios under one roof. My design studio space is a large room with multiple desks, one for computers and another for hand drawn illustrations. I have large bookshelves stocked with good stuff I’ve collected. My walls are covered in art and product collaborations I’ve worked on like snowboards, skateboards, bicycle frames, clocks, and even a Telecaster guitar. I’m a huge fan of plants so my windows have become mini-jungles thriving off of the daylight.

I also collect cacti. My desk is slowly being consumed my them. No dozing off in there. Ha! My other studio is for painting and messy, artsy endeavors. Most days I will wrap up my client work in the computer lab and retreat to this space to work on personal projects and canvas paintings for my next gallery exhibition. The balance between the two disciplines is really nice. Work in one realm informs the other. Cross pollination of ideas and aesthetics keeps me going.”

Matt W. Moore is the founder of MWM Graphics, a Design and Illustration studio based in Portland, Maine. Matt works across disciplines, from colorful digital illustrations in his signature “Vectorfunk” style, to freeform watercolor paintings, and massive aerosol murals. MWM exhibits his artwork in galleries all around the world, and collaborates with clients in all sectors. Matt is also Co-Founder & Designer for Glyph Cue Clothing.

FROM YOUR DESKS: Is there something you try to accomplish daily?

MATT MOORE: My goal everyday is to create something new. I approach each project the same way, striving to make the best work I can within the parameters of the brief. I’m always growing my skill-set and trying new things. Evolution and innovation are crucial. And it’s always fun to make new discoveries and explore new directions.

FYD: Where you into graffiti as a kid?

MM: Yes. Then and Now! Graffiti was the first creative discipline that I truly immersed myself in, and you can still catch me painting my moniker from time to time. Many of the murals I paint now are a few steps removed from what most consider to be graffiti, but the raw energy, asymmetry, and flow are still there, now through the eye of a designer.

FYD: What graffiti artists inspire you?

MM: Some of my favorite graffiti artists : Dondi, Rime, Jurne, Roids, Lerk, and my whole crew WUT from New England. Beasts from the Northeast!

FYD: How was your show in Paris born?

MM: The residency I did at Since Gallery (Paris) was a great time. I spent a month painting the series of canvases that were on display, and I painted the huge mural on the wall outside the gallery in the week leading up to the opening. That wall now has a new mural on it by another artist. But the other wall I did in Paris for “Let’s Colour” on the canal, and the one in Marseille and Lyon are still going strong.

I’m always growing my skill-set and trying new things. Evolution and innovation are crucial.

FYD: What do you think of 3D film?

MM: I’m holding out for “Alternate Reality Goggles”. Not too impressed with the whole 3D films thing so far.

FYD: Did you see Exit Through The Gift Shop? Was it a farce? I think not.

MM: I’ve yet to see that one, but I plan to soon. I’m a big fan of Bankmeister. He’s killing it.
