About Ben Matthews

Ben Matthews is a fine artist based in Pittsburgh, PA. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1995 and has exhibited his work in exhibitions locally and nationally since 1998. His work was represented by OK Harris Works of Art in New York City from 2000­­–2013 until it’s closing and is represented by Mendelson Gallery in Pittsburgh, PA.

Ben creates fictitious field studies depicting mysterious adaptations and inventions from this not-quite time or place based on current environmental concerns and social topics. His drawings combine visual puns and irony with social messages. His exploration into a unique, fantastical and sometimes unsettling universe encourages viewers to think about current concerns by presenting a glimpse at futuristic flora, fauna and manmade inventions that have resulted from our impact on the world.

What People Are Saying

Wonderful art work combined with informative timelines. Earthly deco inside with an option for a self guided outdoor sculpture garden - worth the walk. Don’t skip the children’s art display - simply delightful.
