True Goon is a collaborative selling platform for artists Matthew and Hannah Diomataris.
Matthew R. Diomataris (°1987, Woodbridge, United States) is a self-taught artist who creates mixed media artworks, paintings and illustrations.
His work is based on inspiring images: visions that reflect a sensation of imagination and contemplation, combined with (sometimes) subtle details of odd or eccentric, humoristic elements. With influences such as Ed Templeton, Dave McKean and Trina Robbins, new works are created from both graphic, and transcendent layers.
Hannah Diomataris (°1986, Arlington, United States) makes photos, paintings and mixed media artworks. By contesting the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, Diomataris seduces the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of daily events. Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the human drama in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in everyday life.Her collected, altered and own works are being confronted as aesthetically resilient, thematically interrelated material for memory and projection. Hannah studied Photography at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA.
Matthew and Hannah currently live and work in Greenville, SC.
