Biography

Matthew Rodich is a painter currently living on the South Shore of Massachusetts.  He originated from the rural woods of Central Pennsylvania.  Rodich takes inspiration from his Appalachian roots and memories to craft his conceptual and narrative paintings. Recently, worked towards a fine art direction, rather than just an illustration focused artist. Presently, his work is based on experiences, and conscious and subconscious visions that he records.  His work has been displayed in Italy, Los Angeles, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania. 

 

Currently, he is crafting a new portfolio in a dimly lit basement studio and producing a podcast.
