Secret Walls Artist Spotlight: Matt Darling

We teamed up with live entertainment arts brand, Secret Walls, for their Support Your Local Artist Tour. This annual event supports up-and-coming creators, their communities, and our favorite part--seeking the positive. Artists from all over get together for live illustration battles through such disciplines as paint, 2D freestyle and 2D collage. Check out more about the tour here.


Today, we’re highlighting self-proclaimed art weirdo, Matt Darling. His art is unique in the honest way he uses simple illustrative imagery to distill complicated emotions, exploring vulnerability, love, loss and struggle for balance. His aesthetic is informed by early animation, vintage Halloween ephemera and valentines.

Get to know Matt and see him in action.
