About Art by Matto

Matthew Orefice is a Studio Artist by design and Graphic Artist by trade. The Aesthetic Asylum is his studio in Bristol, CT. Over the past couple years, interest grew away from graphics and more into his artistic roots with a love of the human body and people. He can do almost anything with art: oil or acrylic painting, graphite, charcoal, pen & ink, pastel drawing, portraits, landscapes, still-life, sculpture, photography, print-making and computer art as well. He’s inspired by life and what it brings him; Some things sweet, some things natural, some things vulgar, some things a little rock n’ roll.

He is an intelligent, gifted, and determined young artist - what can be called the “trifecta” of skills one needs to make a serious go at such a difficult and saturated field. Early on in his studies, Matthew began to go above and beyond the call of the individual assignment, always thinking several steps ahead of the game. For example, without any outside suggestion, Matthew begins to work toward a defined body of work. There are no lonely islands of assignments in his mind. All work, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, comes together to form a larger vision.
