Matt Dobbs's Details
About Matt Dobbs
Matt Dobbs was born June 1987 in the San Fernando valley of Los Angeles, where he spent most of his life. He is currently a Brooklyn based designer and photographer, creating work that explores many different mediums including painting, installation, graffiti, screen-printing, and mix media images. Despite the interweaving of many mediums, his work remains cohesive and elements of other mediums are incorporated well together, where themes and motifs are consistent throughout the versatile content of his work.
The urban documentarian style of Dobbs work is a persistent vision, exploring a childlike observance of the grittier aspects of American subculture, unveiling his “own generations fucked up youth, and fucked up shit in general.” Most importantly his work encompasses a generation of life in the city, capturing the essence and influences of graffiti, skateboarding, punk, and the subcultures of an urban society.
