Matt Duffin
Untitled (Ostrich)

$8,000

About

Matt Duffin was born in 1968 and grew up in Houston, Texas. He received his Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Houston. He never practiced as an architect, choosing instead to become an artist. Through art, he found that he could easily combine his tendency toward right angles and perspective drawing with the more human themes of solitude and irony. Over time, his medium has evolved from charcoal to encaustic wax, but he continues to dwell in the realm of dark recesses and stark contrasts. Duffin currently splits time between Barcelona, Mexico City and Northern California with his wife and two teenage children. His work has appeared in Artnews, Elephant Magazine (London), The Morning News, The New York Times Magazine, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Sacramento Bee, Studio Visit Magazine, Communication Arts Illustration Annual, American Illustration, and Zyzzyva, among other publications. In 2013, his work appeared on the cover of the German edition of Jonathan Franzen’s book, Farther Away (Weiter Weg), published by Rowohlt. In 2016, Duffin contributed 6 pieces (including the cover image) to a project with The New York Times Magazine: a 16,000 word, standalone excerpt from Colson Whitehead’s novel, The Underground Railroad. Most recently, Duffin created the cover image for the NYTimes bestselling book, “The Labyrinth of the Spirits”, by Carlos Ruiz Zafón.
