Taj Mattingly

Founder + Artistic Director

Taj Mattingly | Artist and Illustrator

Taj studied at Visual Arts Center in Montgomery County, but after an accident that injured his dominan than in the summer of 2016, Taj left his life of working as a graphic designer and illustrator to pursue a new way to tell his stories with artwork. Driven by a focus on technique, Taj has pushed to learn new ways of drawing that he can approach ambidextrously. Following the injury, Taj began experiencing chronic pain, which inevitably influenced his work. He now approaches art in a relentless pursuit. Taj’s current work uses bold, expressive marks to give the work a sense of movement that is both purposeful and unavoidable. In all of his work he pushes for a balance between overwhelming intention and calm.
