About Matthew Hatt (HIM, The King.)
Matthew Hatt is a former sous chef, turned visual artist. After chefing around Halifax and Ontario for many years, Matthew decided to move back to his childhood home of Gold River, where Matthew has worked as a visual art for almost 13 years. Matthew Hatt's art style is varied, the categories they are under are very loose, bouncing from style he never knows what category they fall under, so try not to over think it and have fun taking it all in. Matthew's photography is suppose to be contemplative in nature, most of them are taken on Oak Island, where Matthew helps as a tour escort.
Due to size and cost Matthew is no longer able to ship paintings, but prints could be arranged. Also, please note Matthew no longer takes commissions.

Artist Statement Of Matthew Hatt (HIM®, The King.)
My art work is an interesting mix of styles with a focus on color, texture and compositional aesthetics, the mood and emotional content can be powerful.
I consider my artwork outsider art
I possess a strong interest in painting, music and film.
I seek beauty in the simplicity found in new experiences, people, places, and art forms.
I love to create.
I love seeking inspiration from the world as well as inspiring others to create.
I don't name my paintings because I believe in duality. Most of my modern art has 2 or 3 meanings depending who is interpretating it and how they are interpretating it. When you inquire about my pieces, I enjoy hearing your version of what you see.
"In Front Of You."
