Matt Duffin was born in 1968 and grew up in Houston, Texas. He received a BA in Science in Architecture from the University of Houston.
Instead of choosing the natural path of an architect, he became an artist. Through art, he found that he could easily combine his tendency toward right angles and perspective drawing with the more human themes of solitude and irony.
Over time, Duffin has traded charcoal for encaustic wax, while his themes remain more or less constant, focused on bringing forward dark recesses and stark contrasts.
His work has been exhibited at Bakersfield Museum of Art and he has been featured such publications as Artnews, The Morning News, NYArts Magazine, and Studio Visit Magazine.
