Who is Matt Bazemore?

Biography

Washington native Matt Bazemore is a studied plein air painter whose artistic vision is to provide a window into the life, light and color of his idealized journey and experience.   Working primarily in acrylics, Mr. Bazemore utilizes a bold palette and style to capture the unique spirit and beauty of rural and urban landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. 


Born in Spokane, Washington in 1958, Mr. Bazemore relocated with his family to the Bellevue/Seattle area in 1966.  He began his formal art studies in high school when he was invited to attend the prestigious Centrum Foundation Art School in Port Townsend, Washington for the study of painting and glass blowing.  He continued his artistic training at Western Washington University in Bellingham where he matriculated in 1985 with a B.F.A.  It was during his tenure at Western Washington that Mr. Bazemore created an album cover and art directed a second for the internationally acclaimed E.M.I. recording artists Queensryche.  Mr. Bazemore then went on to study at The School of Visual Concepts between 1997 and 2000 where he studied illustration concepts with Edwin Fotheringham and Margaret Chodose-Irvine as well as computer graphics and print production.  

Mr. Bazemore’s work has been presented at a variety of group and individual shows Seattle, Bellevue and Arlington.  He currently lives and works in Seattle, Washington.  When not at his artist’s easel, Mr. Bazemore is most likely pursuing his other lifelong passion of playing drums with various local rock musicians.
