Thank you so much for building this website. I agree that the human body is not something to be ashamed of, instead we should celebrated its beauty and at the same time learn to appreciate our differences.
My name is Mattman and I am a young artist from Belgium.
I have a un believable love for drawing human bodies. It is so different form drawing a landscape, an animal or even something abstract. Because people have a soul and feelings that can be expressed in the smallest muscle or posture.
What makes me even more happy is to see that people who pose nude for my art, all enjoy it and grow from it. With all the photo shopped models and the sick magazines telling you how you should look, nobody actually looks at her- or himself anymore without comparing.
We all have this twisted view of ourselves. But if you look only at yourself as a perfect whole, you will soon realize the beauty of your own physique and why it is built that way.
With my art I have a different kind of mirror to show people how amazing they look and it helps them so much to get that confidence.
All the artwork is made on recycled material that I find in the city. It is an attempt to clean the streets but also because I love the raw materials and the fact that they have a history. I paint on old windows, metal plates, broken tables, … to give new life to something that had no value anymore.
With my drawings and paintings I am trying to teach something about self respect and the beauty of the human body. I don't fill in details to leave some room for dreaming..
I hope you enjoy discovering my artwork.
Feel free to ask me any question.
