Matthew Scott Myers is a self taught, professional artist living and working in Carrboro, North Carolina. He graduated from The University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a Creative Writing Degree. After years of toiling in front of a computer and traveling the world in a rock n roll band, Scott sat down in front of a canvas, squeezed colored oil onto a palette, and accidentally found the way he wanted to spend the rest of his life. Scott is a self-taught artist, working in oils, looking to capture the vibrant world he sees around himself. He describes his works as Saturated Realism, or sometimes Acidism, and then sometimes also impressionism. Maybe a little expressionism? Hard say really. He was honored with solo shows at the Louise Jones Brown Gallery at Duke University, the Center for the Study of the American South, at the University of North Carolina, and the Page-Walker Arts Center in Cary, North Carolina. His works are in many private collections, including The Purdue Pharmaceutical Permanent Collection and The Woodlands Collections of Chapel Hill.
