Matt Mignanelli


enamel and acrylic on canvas
48 x 36 inches

Working only in blue, white, and black enamel paint, Brooklyn artist Matt Mignanelli meticulously creates all-over, geometric compositions inspired by industrial motifs. The mechanical appearance of the grid mimics automated printing methods, though he disrupts it by leaving in the splatters that accumulate during the painting process. Mignanelli derived the utilitarian shade of blue for these paintings from its use in urban settings on mailboxes, dumpsters, and doors, though the color just as easily reads as a stand-in for the ocean or an evening sky. Mignanelli was born in Providence, RI, and attended RISD. His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions in Turin, Copenhagen, Los Angeles, Lausanne, and New York.
