San Francisco native Matthew Palladino uses printmaking techniques as well as watercolor, acrylic ink, and acrylic gouche to create the majority of his artwork. The artist’s work has undergone relative transformation in the last several years as Palladino has continued to refine and develop both old and new techniques. His early work was generally very flat and as he has continued to make watercolor paintings in a somewhat similar style, the artist has also gone on to develop a process of layering to create works with a very sculptural, three-dimensional element. Upon inspection one can see the beautiful growth of Matthew Palladino as an artist as some of the patterns found in his early work are evolved and implemented in his most recent pieces. According to the artist in an early-career 2008 interview with FECALFACE, this growth and development began when he became bored with the art he was creating and went to art school where a professor pushed him to his limits to create his best and most innovative works at the time.
