Matt Mignanelli, born in Rhode Island in 1983, lives and works in New York City and is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. His paintings have been widely exhibited throughout the United States and internationally with exhibitions at Richard Heller Gallery, Los Angeles, LUCE Gallery, Torino, SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, Goss-Michael Foundation, Dallas, Quint Contemporary, San Diego, among others. His works will also be included in Face to Face: Selections from the Ernesto Esposito Collection at Palazzo Fruscione, Salerno.
His studio is located in Bushwick, a really industrial section of Brooklyn. This landscape consists of cinder block, diamond plate steel, roll down gates and corrugated metal buildings painted in basic colors: black, white, chrome, brick red and grey. There is vibrancy and work ethic in the neighborhood. Since architecture and environment play such a huge role in informing his work, Matt loves the utilitarian nature of it all. New York is a constant source of inspiration and there is the right energy around his studio for him to feed off. Check the pictures below and how they capture such a unique space.
