About the artist

Lauren Matsumoto is a painter exploring how we relate to nature. She is best known for her use of a hybrid form of painting, drawing, and collage, both as a unique medium and as an innovative way of thinking when composing traditional paintings. During nearly three decades as an artist, she has exhibited her artwork across the United States in over 60 exhibitions. Internationally, her work was presented in a solo show at Fabrik Gallery in Hong Kong, and in group shows at ArtLink Canada in Vancouver, the Art Complex Gallery in Tokyo and the United States Embassy in Oman. In 2016, Saatchi Art chief curator, Rebecca Wilson, selected Matsumoto as their “One To Watch” feature artist. Her work has appeared in notable publications and blogs such as Domino, Aesthetica, The Jealous Curator, HOME Journal, Studio Visit, Booooooom and The Cut. Matsumoto has an international collector base, with works held in collections across Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and North America. She received an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York and BA in Painting from Yale University. She works as a full-time painter at her studio in Brooklyn, NY.

Statement
This work is a collection of quotes from friends, movies, and a soccer player whom I greatly admire. Hand lettering is something I do on the side that allows me to express my feelings and keep myself inspired. Like every artist and designer, I try to push myself to overcome creative blocks; carrying a sketchbook, tapping into other creative disciplines, or listening to music. Hand lettering forces me to be creative outside of work and have fun with the ideas that come. It also encourages me to be more positive about my work.
