Matthew Brinston - An Artists Portrait
Art, coffee and a Chateau…oh and creme fraiche, lots of creme fraiche. Those things pretty much sum up Matthew Brinstons time in France.
I met Matt in Paris. Hailing from Dallas, Texas, he told me he was heading over to Chateau D’Orquevaux in the champagne region of France on an artists residency for a month. During this time his plan was to create a series of artwork for his first exhibition in Europe. A couple of weeks into the residency Matt called and said I should really come out to the Chateau. Never one to pass up playing lord of the Chateau for a few days, plus the fact I knew this was a photo story waiting to happen I grabbed my cameras and left Paris behind, bound for the Chateau D’Orquevaux where Matt was creating for his upcoming Paris exhibition.
Here’s a behind the scenes look at the both the Chateau and the man himself at work, drinking coffee, patiently posing for photographs and creating the very pieces of art you’ll no doubt soon find over on his website - https://brinston.co
