Tom Matousek's award winning artistic journey began with studying and drawing cartoons as a child. His talents quickly developed into a highly successful and meteoric rise to fame as a prominent mural artist. Experimenting with portraits, Matousek developed a technique composing faces using sharp geometric forms. At first glance, his style appears to focus on individual shapes and colors, yet is truly more about light value causing the human eye to view his work in a way that manipulates the shapes and colors involuntarily to find a cohesive form.
He has been the artist in residence for the DDR Corporation, and has been featured at Art Basel in Miami, Fla. He was the featured artist at the world's largest chalk festival in Pasadena, Ca. in 2013-14 and his painting of Frederick Douglass was selected by the U.S. government as the official logo for a year long celebration honoring Mr Douglass. More than anything, he loves being a licensed Disney artist since 2016 and licensed with Chuck Jones Galleries since 2017.
