Matt Smith's Bio

Matt Smith Originals Matt Smith Home Matt Smith Price Guide

Matthew Smith was born in 1969 in Detroit, Michigan. He moved to Hawaii in 1981 and in 1993 he graduated from the University of Hawaii with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts majoring in painting. He started painting at a very early age, always conveying strong feelings of emotions and a sense of humor. Smith tends to mix bold colors into an intense technical wizardry that result in a painting that captivates the viewer’s eye. Smith's palette is very unusual from his rich earthy oranges to his electrifying teal blues. Matt has a rare sense of color and his own sense of design that show up on his canvas extremely well.

Matthew has been inspired to create from an early age. His palette is influenced by his surroundings; it reflects the brilliant hues of Hawaii. “The light here is so vibrant, the colors I see every day literally glow with life. That along with my love of painting sparks my creativity.”

His themes are varied but the common thread throughout his work would be that of peace. Matthew paints inviting images that calm the racing mind. It is his goal to engage the viewer, he explains: “If my work can draw someone in and they forget, even for an instant, I have helped create a moment of peace. That is my objective.”

Matthew Smith is one of those artists whose work talks directly to the viewer. It guides the viewer on a journey through rich symbols, strong colors and a deep sense of caring,

Smith paints primarily in an outdoor studio on the Island of Maul in the town of Lahaina. The mountains are his back-drop and the ocean lies within his view. Owning a Smith original is a positive and rewarding cultural experience

Matthew lives on the island of Maui with his wife and two children, they are his true inspiration.
