Accidental Empires by Matthew Quick

Matthew Quick has been named in Business Review Weekly as one of Australia’s top 50 artists. He’s painted since his teens but for a long time was distracted by other careers – working variously as a university lecturer, photographer, cleaner, salesman, art director, copywriter & interior designer. Until returning full time to painting, he was the founder and Creative Director of his own advertising agency, Q&A.

“It’s not so crazy, you know…” he says. “Elias Canetti’s mother packed him off to study in Germany during the rise of Fascism so that he might have a ‘broader education. “I am already planning the next several series that will keep me busy for years – so all of this is just research!”—Matthew Quick
