Matthew J. Frock
Matthew J. Frock has always been creative. His formal art education started early with private lessons at twelve-years. In 1997 he earned a BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design and 10-years later earned an MFA in Painting from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. In 2016 Matthew founded the MJFdesign Gallery in Belgium. Most paintings begin with a monotone drawing that he brings to balance. Color is worked in the same way. One painting may be built up with as many as thirty color layers, some more but usually not less. The end result is a chaotic, yet balanced torrent of swirling color.
