ABOUT MATTHEW FENNELL
Artist, Graphic Designer, Screen Printer.
Following my studies at the University of Canterbury (BFA) I have been working as a textile screen printer in Christchurch, New Zealand.
My illustrative work takes on a light-hearted appearance. Odd-ball characters are created in flat, vibrant colours all contained by precise black outlines. Influence is drawn from cartoons of my childhood as well as the rich visual library of basketball and sneaker culture.
