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 everyday experiences  in New England to craft his conceptual and narrative acrylic paintings. Recently, he became more of a fine arts painter, rather than just an illustration focused artist. Presently, his work is based on experiences, day-visions, and nightly dreams that he records. His work has been displayed in Italy, Los Angeles, and Massachusetts. 

 

Currently, he is crafting a new body of work in a dimly lit basement studio.
