Matt Small is an artist I came across via the super talented That African Kid blog and I got excited immediately. His works are best understood as an extension of his beliefs by painting portraits of individuals on the outskirts of society, often young black men, Matt Small encourages us to spend time with people who we may overlook in our daily lives and in doing so forces us to challenge our prejudices and recognize our shared humanity. Most of his works his works mixed Media employing the use of oil and canvas and various other materials. Super talented!
