Matthew Grabelsky

is an American painter. Born in Los Angeles and raised in New York, he graduated from Rice University in 2002 with a BA in Art and Art History and a BS in Astrophysics. Afterwards, he moved to Florence, Italy, where he spent four years studying the techniques of classical drawing and painting, followed by a two and a half year sojourn in Paris painting independently and learning directly from the work of the great French Masters. Through these experiences, science taught him how to observe the world, and art has allowed him to express my relationship to it. 

His work focuses on combining the physical world that he see around him every day with imagery from mythology, dreams, and fairytales. These paintings are not intended to be viewed as fantasy or as allegory, but rather as a blend of every-day experiences with the subconscious. They are enigmatic, and create dream-like worlds that invite viewers to form their own interpretations of the imagery presented.
