Hailing from Westbrook, Maine, artist Matt Donahue truly has a passion for the abstract art to which he has devoted his life. Matt has constructed makeshift studios everywhere from his own living room and friends’ basements where he lived to the addition built on a garage in 1985 that continues to serve its purpose today. Working with mostly oils on canvas, he has been known to also use pencils and pastels. Matt has nearly 1500 pieces in various states and countries that have exclusively been sold through word of mouth. For the first time we are attempting to share Matt’s beautiful gift and passion for the rest of the world to enjoy. After seeing just a few pieces, even the art-illiterate will have no problem identifying these as unique and impressive.
