Matej Kvasnovsky

London based weekend artist, traveller and expatriate. Originally from Trencin.

As a full-time UX designer in a fintech startup, I also like to escape from the world of functional design and become an independent artist from Highbury for a few hours a week.

Having at least four homes and dozens of countries visited I feel that I carry with me a little bit of each place that I've lived for a while. My drawings remind me of them and the act of capturing helps me to observe my surroundings with a keener eye.

My style is inspired by artist like Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso or architects Josep Maria Subirachs, Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid. However, the biggest influence on me have the artists, illustrators and calligraphers whom I follow on Instagram.
