My name is Matthew Conway and I am an artist working in Austin, TX. My work is figurative illustration inspired by midcentury pin-ups. My work explores contemporary masculinity in all its awkward, beautiful, humorous, and fragile incarnations. I choose to work predominately in color pencils as they are seen as a juvenile and "low art" material, which frees them of the history and connotations of a more traditional art medium like oil paint. Please feel free to check out my work on my website www.matthewsconway.com and on instagram (matteattack.) My work is also available through my big cartel page as well.
