Matthew Fishel was born in Washington, D.C., and earned his MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2010. He lives and works in Baltimore, MD in the Remington neighborhood. Matthew has exhibited nationally. His first solo show was in 2011, at the Fine Arts Work Center.
Originally interested in painting, Matthew has expanded his practice to include animation, video, installation, and digital imaging. Raised by a television journalist in a home that celebrated Star Trek as philosophical way stone, his work is devoted to critically investigating what is imagined related to what is material.
