{Some of Matte's Clients}
Velocity Art and Design

Matte's work isn't particularly my favorite. I do appreciate and enjoy his work and hope that more work comes for him. I do think his use of materials is handled well though. Probably my favorite piece is that of the fox. I think it looks so sweet and cunning. I would like to see a branching out of the same material to further push his concepts and production.
