Matt Harvey’s portraits are celebrated for the depth of their humanity and vibrant character.
He graduated from Wimbledon School of Art in London after studying Fine Art, specialising in Sculpture. While originally he developed an artistic practice making abstract sculpture and painting, he continued to work on portraits. During this time he became increasingly interested in renaissance painting techniques, and had the opportunity to study under James Scrace, a pupil of Pietro Annigone’s, and learned the techniques of the Italian masters. He continues to use these techniques in his oil portraits.
As well as painting in oils Matt also makes bronze portraits and carves portraits directly in marble. All the marble he uses is sourced in the famous Carrara mountains in Italy.
