MATTHEW HAMBY was born in Kettering, Ohio, and moved to Cincinnati in the early 90’s. He developed a deep passion for drawing in high school, which led him to pursue a BFA in Illustration from the Cleveland Institute of Art. He has since returned to Cincinnati where he continues to create and develop his illustrations for such clients as CityBeat and Cincinnati Gentlemen Magazine, and maintains a website for promotion and sales of his prints and T-shirts.
“I have always been a figurative artist, with a satirical sense of humor. During the course of my studies at The Cleveland Institute of Art, I developed what has been perceived as a strange and gnarled style. Using pen and ink as the medium, I focus on the weight of line and its contour. I apply washes with different inks and water colors. The themes of my work go hand in hand with the style — distorted characters and observations of modern day society.” - C. Matthew Hamby*
*THIS EXHIBITION RUNS THROUGH APRIL 26.
