Matthew Quick has painted since his teens but for a long time was distracted by other careers – working variously as a university lecturer, photographer, cleaner, salesman, art director, copywriter & interior designer. Until returning full time to painting, he was the founder and Creative Director of his own advertising agency, Q&A.
In the last 4 years he has either won, or been selected as a finalist for, more than 40 major national art awards, including the Sulman Art Prize, the Mosman Art Prize, the Glover Prize, the Redland Art Award, the Paddington Art Prize, the City of Albany Art Prize, the Fisher’s Ghost Art prize, the Blake Prize Director’s Cut, the Black Swan Prize for Portraiture, the Townsville Open Art Award, the Duke Art Prize, the John Leslie Art prize, the Churchie and the Prometheus.
Matthew was also been named in Business Review Weekly as one of Australia’s top 50 artists.
