Matthew Good is a current resident of Asheville, raised in Hickory, NC. As a promising artist in his early twenties he became aquatinted with Ben Long IV. For the better part of the last decade Good has studied in the master apprentice tradition with Long, learning both master techniques in oil as well as fresco and drafting.
His work is grounded in traditional renaissance style , shrouded in a deeper darker brooding pallet yet reflects a youthful modernism in it's subject matter.
