Matthew Valera

I go by Valera. I am an emerging artist in the Fort Lauderdale. My work ranges from photography to painting. My approach for each is different. My photography started in documentation and then progressed to making work. In that way I aim to capture something genuine and honest above all. Painting is a more internal subconscious approach. It’s a way of putting subjects and tangible means to feelings that seem to have no origin in my brain. A means of understanding the world around me while giving my hands a way of dealing with anxiety. Photography I capture the world in front of me. Painting I create the world from the canvas up. Together the tie between the two provide a balancing yin yang effect, satisfying my creative nature.
