Matt Hirschfeld (The Artist)

Matt's style is inspired by the late New York Times caricature artist Al Hirschfeld, who suggested in a 1997 documentary that one day an artist  might be able to do what he does but on the computer rather than with a  pen. In 2004, One year after Al's passing, Matt was encouraged to  continue with the HIRSCHFELD name and is starting to catch interest  throughout the entertainment community. Not only has his work been  featured in the New York Times and Variety, he has also created pieces  for NBC/Universal, Lionsgate, Paramount and the Walt Disney Company. In  2006, a drawing he created of the film Crash was distributed by  Lionsgate to the cast and film makers of the movie after winning the  Academy Award for Best Picture.

Originally  from St. Louis, MO, Matthew Evan Hirschfeld was born on September 12,  1979. His love for art began at a young age as he would devote hours  both in and outside of school working on his drawings. At only nine  years old he developed a particular interest and skill towards computer  artwork. After graduating from the University of Missouri-St. Louis Matt  moved west to Los Angeles in order to be closer to the film industry.  

While  away from his art, Matt still finds other ways to stay busy. He loves  going to the movies and always keeps an eye open for possible future  drawings. Matt is also a devoted hockey player and practices yoga which  helps to keep him in shape.
