Exploring how Ideas and feelings can be expressed through the use of movement in my art has been a dream of mine for over 30 years.

Our perception of reality is subjective. We are in constant flux, as is the world around us, always changing from moment to moment. Movement and time largely define our reality.

I’m obsessively passionate about exploring this aspect of our perception through my work. To be immersed in a living environment that challenges the imagination.

From the age of five, Steve Matson was taught to draw and paint by his mother, who was an accomplished artist. From his early beginnings as an illustrator, to painting amazing environments in award-winning Hollywood films. Steve has always looked to redefine what’s possible in art.

For over 30 years it has been his goal to bring his paintings to life, organically and without compromise. He would have to wait 25 years for technology to mature to the point where he could achieve that goal.

Through this waiting period he was not idle, he has had an award winning career creating matte paintings for movies. Films as: Life of Pi (Academy Award for Best Visual Effects 2013), Polar Express, Star Wars EP3, Superman, The Chronicles of Narnia, Surfs Up, Beowulf, 300 and many others. 

In 2010 he created his first Moving Painting, achieving his life-long goal. Since then his life hasn’t been the same. With each new work, he continually pushes the boundaries of this seemingly unlimited new medium.

Steve is now permanently represented by eight galleries in the US and has hundreds of collectors all over the globe.
