Born in Las Cruces, New Mexico, 33-year-old working-artist Matthew Trujillo now calls Austin, TX his home. Matthew draws influence from fashion, music, architecture, design, and beyond. His use of sharp, graphic-style facial expressions, mixed with contemporary design creates striking presentations of modern pop art mixed with street style aesthetic. Successfully experimenting with the different light tones that bring more intensity and depth to his painting Trujillo creates mesmerizing art that sparks the imagination of the viewer and invites them to create their own story. Having gained a strong following across Texas, Trujillo was featured in the show Concrete to Canvas as a represented artist of HOPE Outdoor Gallery. Following the exhibition, Trujillo was added to West Chelsea Contemporary’s represented artist roster.


In the Midst was initially created at the beginning of lockdown in March 2020. Trujillo explains that this was the first time he had the opportunity to create without a deadline on the horizon, allowing him to slow down and meditate on what was most important to him. In the Midst encapsulates Trujillo’s bold graphic style and signature brushstroke, symbolism that reminds the artist of his home in Las Cruces, NM, and represents finding light amongst hardship. Trujillo and Lichtenstein experimented with color and texture, employing a total of seven silkscreens, to create this limited edition release.
