Featured Artist Matt Miezio shares about his work and connection to Santa Cruz:
“My name is Matt Miezio and I am a Collage Artist / Graphic Designer based in Santa Cruz, CA. I primarily use vintage magazines, scissors, an X-acto, and glue to make my collage art. 90% of the material I use is sourced from National Geographic’s magazines I have found dumpster diving around Santa Cruz.”
“The majority of my work is exploring surrealism or futurism based on my current state of mind. So for the most part I have no idea what I am going to create until I’m half way into the process. It tends to usually be based off a feeling or a visual.”
“I think the diversity of Santa Cruz and its surroundings help give me a wide range of ideas when it comes to starting a new piece. What connects me to Santa Cruz would have to be the culture. I love how much passion there is towards art, music, and nature.”
