This week we are featuring Vincent Mattina (@vincentmattina) as our Port PHOTO Alumni feature! Vincent is a multidisciplinary artist who also is an accomplished digital photographer. His richly detailed work transports you to an alternate reality where science, nature, and spirituality evolve. His distinctive personal style emanates a surreal and mysterious quality that evokes the spirit and atmosphere of another reality.

Born in St. Louis, Vincent began his love affair with art when he was first able to hold a pencil. After graduating from CCAD he moved out of the Midwest and into the Los Angeles area where worked as an Art Director. There he became fluent in Photoshop and found it could be a tool to create his own art.

A multiple award winner, Vincent was given 1st place at the Orange County Fair in the digital and mixed media categories every year from 2014-2016. At the end of 2016 he moved to Salt Lake City pursuing a better quality of life. There he is inspired by the natural beauty, open spaces and the majestic local mountains.

His artwork is included in numerous private art collections throughout the U.S. as well as being published and collected internationally.
