Matthew Quick is one of those artists who known how to combine their artistic mind and imagination with history, pop culture and social aspects.
He has been featured in many magazines, CD covers and book covers. His knowledge in the world’s history and its many travels have given him quite the material to form his creative images. Below we feature his series Monumental Nobodies. Taking his inspiration and subjects from famous sculptures and artworks, Quick re-imagines famous people of history by giving them headphones, band-aids and martinis.
He writes on his website, “It’s not so crazy, you know… Elias Canetti’s mother packed him off to study in Germany during the rise of fascism so that he might have a ‘broader education. I am already planning the next several series that will keep me busy for years – so all of this is just research!”
