About

Matt Story studied art from an early age and demonstrated a unique skill for rendering verisimilitude, or hyperrealism. His underwater swimmer paintings are created after extensive photo shoots. Through his hyperrealistic style, he captures the bubbles, light, reflection and movement of both the water and the figure. His method of oil painting on canvas and panel closely resembles the classical method, used for centuries by masters such as Titian and Caravaggio, two of Story's heroes, fastidiously building up thin glazes, painting "fat over lean" with traditional materials.
