My name is Matt Markum. I’m an abstract/surrealist painter living just outside of Los Angeles.
A little about myself-
I grew up in Southern California. I’ve been interested in art since I was young. I can always remember liking to draw and in high school experimenting with illustration and painting. I am now 30 and over the past few years, I have been consistently painting and trying new techniques. Prior to the COVID pandemic, I worked as a bartender but as of April my place of work was shut down. This has given me a lot of time to hone my craft and work on my style. I paint on the daily now. It provides me with an outlet to express how I’m feeling and a sense of peace during these chaotic times. Thank you for checking out my page
