Matthew Waddell

Hi, I’m Matthew Waddell.
I’m a digital artist and educator based in my hometown of Calgary, Canada.  For the last 12 years I have been exploring the different ways in which art and technology come together to create provocative, inspiring and entertaining experiences.  

I am both fascinated and deeply apprehensive of modern technology and internet culture - art making helps to deal with the dichotomy of attraction and repulsion I feel every time I pick up my phone.

Making art with computers is also just really fun! I hope to inspire others to be as excited as I am about this so I teach as often as I can.

Creative expression is a lifelong voyage, and I am fascinated to be undertaking it at this moment in history. I’ve always been interested in the strange, surreal and absurd - it often reveals something profound about who we are and seems more relevant than ever, given the absurd times we are living in.
