In his painting Power Struggle Page 1(above left), the artist incorporates other street artists’ graffiti tags into the background of his work, while drawing from punk rock and comic book inspirations. While 'CONTROL' delves into darker themes, the artist continues to create his action-packed imagery with high energy and life.
The 'CONTROL' Exhibition by Matt Gondek opens Saturday 16 November until 11 January 2020.
2019 was about regaining control after so many changes in my life. I created a book which details my personal struggles, my artwork, and travels in 2019. It’s called 你可以在任何地方 or “You can be anywhere”. I realized that you can be anywhere to get a career moving. You can be anywhere for life to completely change. You can be anywhere and be depressed . It’s been a hard year but I’m sitting here writing this and I’m so happy. For the first time in a long time I feel like I’m moving in the right direction with my life . My new exhibition CONTROL is a celebration of this. Come spend next Saturday with me celebrating life and check out my new book. Hope you can make it ✌️ . Control opens this Saturday November 16th in Los Angeles at @avenuedesArts_gallery. 4-8pm PST. . #gondekDraws
