Matt Furie was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1979. He graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio. He currently lives in San Francisco. Matt Furie’s drawings come from a mix of child-like enchantment and momentary adult situations. His self proclaimed “…children’s book illustrations for adults” combines traditional and modern mark-making for his ripe, cartoon-inspired characters. Last year he was awarded best Visual Artist by the SF Bay Guardian in the 20th annual Goldie awards. Furie has exhibited in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, and abroad. His art has appeared in numerous magazines including juxtapoz, vice, the believer, the oxford american journal and swindle.
