The Adventures of Mathew Sawyer

Visual Artist and Musician Mathew Sawyer‘s nonsensical, humorous and clever works are worth a closer look.  His first solo show in a public gallery took place this year titled  White Male, 36 Years Old, Average Height, No Pets, Out of Shape and Anxious, and he’s been busy between shows of art, music and in between.  Check out this selected list of works, some on going, documentary, some funny, curious and poignant that Sawyer cleverly crafts together:
