    Hey Matias,

    Fellow artist here. I saw that you wrote how you spent most of your time in painting class. I was wondering if you had an online portfolio of your older, physical work (paintings, drawings, sculptures?, etc). Would be interesting to see.

    Also, which fine artists and/or art movements inspired you?

    I've been splitting my time studying design & creating fine art. Thanks, Big fan of what you and the team have been doing!

      I actually studied quite a bit of art history in school, so it's easier to say what I'm not inspired by.

      I guess personally I'm most comfortable working in the abstract expressionist school. Gorky and Matta are the painters my work is most similar too. Though my figurative influences are heavily pop cultural ... maybe cross the above two with Takashi Murakami and Audrey Kawasaki?

      Amusingly, I discovered I had a strong affinity and love for Matta's work before I knew he was also Chilean!
