Matthew Ryan Hergert

Born on December 21st, 1990, Matthew Ryan Herget is an emerging self-taught artist from Miami, FL. Herget’s paintings are what he refers to as “dirty paintings;” often made up of layers of raw and energetic strokes from beat up paint brushes and palette knives. Interested in a breadth of concepts and subjects, Herget’s work floats in and out of figurative to completely abstracted pieces which he calls, “energy studies.” Whether it be a painting of The President holding up gang signs, astronauts, or purely abstracted paint, the underlying purpose in almost all of his works is an intense urge for personal growth, evolution, and self-development.
