Screens 'N' Spokes '09: Mat Daly

We met Mat for the first time in person at the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn back in June, and he promised he'd cook up something special for Screens 'N' Spokes... I must say, he did not fail to deliver.

With a visual style informed as much by impressionism and japanese block printing as by a fascination with the way digital images break into blocks of color as you zoom in, Mat's work explores the visual re-creation of memories, mostly of natural spaces and landscapes.

Now are those treetops, or the lines on the road after you've been riding hills for 3+ hours??
