Title: MY BUDDY
"My late dog Booboo. He was my first dog. Had him for almost 11 years until he passed 2 years ago. I know it's cliche to say that a beloved pet is a member of your family, but Booboo truly was his own entity. That's why he was special to us."
Matt Gullstrand has always loved to create from the time he was a toddler. As teen began to sketch and draw in the privacy of his home. It is simply amazing how he captures the life and feeling in his creations. When asked how, Matt says:
"What I always notice about my art is that whatever I draw tends to mean something to me, in a sense of ideas, but it never hits me until a day or so after I've drawn it. Yesterday I disliked this piece but today parting with it would affect me greatly.Anything I draw is an extension of myself in some way. Even if what I draw doesn't necessarily have any incisive meaning, it's just the fact that I put even a small bit of effort into it that Even if what I draw doesn't necessarily have any incisive meaning, it's just the fact that I put even a small bit of effort into it that makes it hard to part with, like your children. It grows, you learn from it and in turn it develops. It's your legacy.
The only difference is that I don't want anything I draw to be the same as a previous work. If you continue doing that same thing and stray from experimentation, everything you draw loses meaning. If I do 100 pieces that, while possibly related, all retain their own individuality then my art stays singular and seminal. This way it avoids becoming a cycle and stays a path."
