Hi, I’m Stefan Matioc, a freelance visual artist currently living in Mexico City, Mexico.
I grew up in the middle of the United States, the only “American born” in a family of first generation Romanian immigrants.
I learned the value of speaking other languages and drawing from foreign cultures while also struggling to identify fully to one.
Impatient and curious - I pursued a degree in animation - an act of magic that involves drawing things over and over again.
After drawing things over and over again I graduated from The Art Institutes International Minnesota with a degree in Media Arts and Animation.
I animated ads and made all sorts of things at Planet Propaganda as a full time motion designer for the next couple years. There, I learned how to draw the line with clients, creatives, and manage deliverables for projects.
My signature stream of consciousness drawing style serves as a personal narrative - the continuous line a reaction to the feeling of surrendering control while exercising it simultaneously.
