Matt Blanks

Following a five-year breather from exhibiting publicly, self-taught painter and illustrator Matt Blanks returned to the art scene, setting a goal to condense his efforts into one major exhibition each year at Flicker. His third annual artist-in-residence show, simply titled “Three,” features 15 of his newest pieces and demonstrates his continual experimentation between mediums as he transitions from paintings to all-digital designs. Blanks, who was AthFest’s official theme artist this year, creates works full of cartoonish characters, alluring symbology and geometric patterns. Live music will be provided by Crunchy and Saline, and Blanks’ exhibition will remain on view through the month of September.
