Matthew Robertson born and raised in San Francisco. He graduated from the Academy of Art University in 2012 with a BFA in illustration.
In 2010 his mural design was chosen to adorn the side of the historic O’Farrell Theater on Polk Street near Geary Boulevard in San Francisco. Robertson’s work focuses on developing a visual language that uses both realism and abstraction to describe a subject. Visually, these images explore the dissonance that arises when realism is paired with the abbreviation and exaggeration of form. Matthew currently resides in Berkeley, California.
