Matthew Lapenta

"I Text, Therefore I Am" - M.L.

The state of constantly connection, eyes forever glued to a glowing screen, endless sharing and updating, on a minute-to-minute basis; these are the realities of living in our society. Matthew's work seeks to explore this relationship by examining the impact of our constant consumption of technology, social media, and entertainment. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, he studied art throughout his adolescence. He attended grad school in Chicago and works as a commercial art director. He moved to Venice, CA in 2012 where he now lives and works on his art. Axiom Contemporary, Santa Monica and Galerie C.O.A Montreal, represent Matthew.
