Matthew Ritchie is a New York based digital artist who was born in London in 1964. He earned his BFA from the Camberwell School of Art in London and also spent some time studying at Boston University as well. Ritchie seeks to encompass the entirety of the universe in his work, therefore, his work is constant and always evolving. He works primarily by drawing and then scanning his images into the computer where he can digitally altar the images further.
As a fan of abstract expressionism, I love the abstract nature of Ritchie’s work. He incorporates so many elements into each composition that his work truly becomes universal. It seems that everyone can find something of interest within each of his pieces. His work is messy and organized all at once and the fact that he also blends together a wide variety of mediums to complete his works, further supports his aim towards creating universal art.
