Inquire

Matt Mignanelli

Born 1983 in Providence, RI. Lives in New York City.

Matt Mignanelli creates paintings based on geometric forms, inspired by light, shadow, and architectural elements present in the urban landscape. His process combines incredibly detailed, methodical hand-painting with references to utilitarian painting applications in municipal and industrial contexts.  He uses enamel and colors such as mailbox blue to reference these functional uses of paint within the urban environment. Mignanelli typically works within a limited color palette of black, white, or blue, while freely exploring permutations of form and recording the element of chance associated with his freehand process in splashes and drips of paint. The spontaneity that emerges makes the paintings feel alive.

Matt Mignanelli received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence, Rhode Island. He has exhibited at thethe SCAD Museum’s Gutstein Gallery in Savannah, Georgia, The Hole in New York City, Anonymous Gallery in Mexico City, Hollis Taggart Gallery in New York City, LUCE Gallery in Turin, Italy, and Richard Heller Gallery in Los Angeles (who represents him on the west coast). He has forthcoming solo exhibitions with Denny Gallery (opening in June 2018), Galerie Clemens Gunzer in Zurich, Switzerland, and Richard Heller Gallery in Los Angeles. Mignanelli’s work has been featured in Interview Magazine, VICE Creators Project, and San Francisco Arts Quarterly (SFAQ).
