MWM-Graphics-Detroit-1

MWM-Graphics was last month in Detroit invited by the Library Street Collective to be a part of the so-called Garage Project.
Curated for a new parking  space in collaboration with Detroit entrepreneur Dan Gilbert, the Library Street Collective commissioned 23 artists from all over the world to paint murals in a newly constructed mixed-use space.
Matt Moore was one of them. The massive wall gives room to his particular style.
Coming from a traditional graffiti background followed by graphic design studies, Matt Moore has in the past years developed a unique, playful and interesting style where geometry, asymmetry, and composition has become the focus in the graphic work. Besides the sharp-edged style we are used to see in his work, we find a more organic one characterised by a continuous flow of colours and shapes, a soft and sleek freehand style like the one we see here. Great work as always.
