Matt Moore

You can’t look at Charlotte’s skyline without seeing his mark. Charlotte is known for its financial backbone. However, under the banking towers and high-rises, what the city is most known for is a growing art movement. Art is proving to not only be a creative outlet but an investment in our community. From murals to sculptures, the local art scene is unavoidable. Using a handful of paint brushes, and dozens of spray paint cans, Moore’s street art can be spotted in nearly every neighborhood in the Queen City. From NoDa to Southend, he’s blowing up boring walls with his take on modern murals. Moore has always used art to express what his words cannot. From a young age, he started with a simple sketch pad, transitioned to watercolors, then to painting in front of audiences. He still paints in front of audiences. It’s just different these days. It just happens to be on a 10-story tall canvas in front of hundreds of people a day. He just wants to create art that’s emotional; like him. Art that’s thought provoking; like him.
