Matt Nahoum’s debut has been a long time coming. Born and raised in the Bronx, the Rabbit, as he is known, is the quintessential New York artist: inspired by everything around him, yet with a slightly twisted interpretation; his city roots lend him a context afforded only to “actual” New Yorkers.
The Rabbit is by no means new to art- indeed, he spent his entire youth, all the way through high school, painting and drawing- but after moving upstate to attend college, and then to San Diego to pursue a job opportunity, he “just stopped painting,” as he puts it. “There was a lack of inspiration, and I just couldn’t find my voice.”
Four years after moving back to his hometown, though, the Rabbit has found his voice and he is ready to speak. “When I left New York I was somewhat disillusioned with the city and it was kind of like we broke up,” he says. “But art heals and when I came back, the new burst of creativity I had almost felt like therapy, and that allowed me to come to terms with who I really am-both as a person and an artist.”
Held at the Time Warner Center’s Samsung Experience, “Abstract Experiences” is both retrospective and reawakening. He has revisited old works and created new ones, tapping in to his newfound maturity as an artist. The exhibition will be held Thursday, July 8th from 6pm-8pm.
About the Rabbit
Eager to create the world through his eyes, Matt Rabbit has been expressing his most inner thoughts and expressions since he was a child. Matt Nahoum is textural abstract artist, living in Brooklyn New York. His work comes from chaotic places in his mind that come to life as he puts feeling to canvas. Art heals, and Matt uses creativity as therapy. It keeps him here. Keeps him from running. Run rabbit, run.
