"Quietly observing the chaos around me; I’m fascinated by the simplicity, yet the overall complexities of the world."
- Matthew R. Paden
The Savvy Artist
Matthew R. Paden is an award-winning contemporary abstract artist living in Oklahoma with his beautiful wife and daughter, Matt's larger-than-life pieces astonish in both private and public exhibits.
Specializing in Spontaneous Realism, The Savvy Artist often uses vivid and expressive colors with lots
of palette knife texture to create the strikingly evocative acrylic pieces.
From his atmospheric “Utopia” series, to the eminently realistic “Famous Faces”, Matt masterly captures the subtlest of emotions and delicate moody intricacies.
Despite his diverse choice of subjects, Matt’s body of work is united in its ability to evoke emotion and awe in the viewer, with precise details etched amongst broad yet perfectly executed brushstrokes.
