Matthew Feyld studio shot
Matthew Feyld is a Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (home of Olympia brewing) based artist. His drawing process is a combination of imagination and reality. Feyld’s work creates an ongoing narrative, often drawn from real events, and experiences leaving a large amount of room for interpretation. Ink, watercolour, and acrylic are the tools he uses to create a world where both human and animal share more than just their boots.
Feyld has exhibited with Krets (Malmo, Sweden), Together Gallery (Portland), Cinders (Brooklyn), Giant Robot (NYC, San Francisco), Rough Trade (London, England), Grasshut (Portland), Tag Art Gallery (Nashville), The Untitled Gallery (Melbourne, Australia), BLVD. Gallery (Seattle), Third Drawer Down Gallery (Victoria, Australia), Galerie Rouje (Quebec City, Quebec), Boontling Gallery (Oakland), Mendal Art Gallery (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan), and several others. His work has been published in the NY Times Magazine and Ruby Magazine and has been included in numerous art fairs including last years Bridge Art Fair in the UK as well as the Aqua Art Fair and Gen Art Vanguard during Art Basel in Miami.

David MacDowell studio shot

David MacDowell is a self-taught artist living in Virginia. He incorporates media culture, and social themes into brilliant and controversial satirical paintings. Working primarily with acrylics on canvas, MacDowell is not afraid of tapping into the dark side of American media worship. He tops off celebrity renderings sprinkled with crying babies, candy colored nightmares, and a hilariously acidic sense of humor. Some have called his work a virtual “Disneyland on acid”. By bravely peeling away the veneer of pop culture, he validates the abused underbelly of society with x-ray glasses. With an ever-expanding list of international clientele, MacDowell’s work can be found in Atlanta, California, Florida and New York.

MacDowell has shown with Ad Hoc Art, The Alcove Gallery, Compound Gallery, Gallery 1988, Harold Golen Gallery, Last Rites Gallery, The Gallery at The Alternative Café and The Gallery at East Atlanta Tattoo.
