Sizzling Spotlight: Matt Denes

Welcome back to the Sizzling Spotlight, where we feature Tallahassee and surrounding area creatives whose work sizzles. We showcase designers and creatives of all forms: they need only possess the spark of creativity – to be “fire” (as the kids say). 🔥

This month we’re thrilled to feature the sizzling work of Matt Denes.

Matt, who creates under the handle No Signal Pictures, is a printmaker and painter based in Tallahassee. He has been creating art for years but started doing it professionally two years ago.

He currently focuses on print-making on paper, shirts and specialty items. He also enjoys painting, sculpting, drumming and making the occasional film.

His work explores a little bit of everything. He loves nature and earthly elements, but also likes dark and brooding themes as well as serious, sometimes satirical topics.🔥

As is our tradition, we asked a member of the community familiar with the artist’s work to talk about it.

“Matt Denes is a tremendously talented multimedia artist. His work is as dynamic as he is, ranging from painting, drawing, film, music, screen printing, block carving and the list goes on. The mediums change and so does the subject matter. His block carving pieces are intricate and have deeply personal yet universal meanings including rebirth and growth and tarot card interpretations.

A sharp juxtaposition are his screen printed items that often contain puns and cute characters. Even more beautiful is the fact that he regularly donates portions of his sales to various charities that are close to him. I’m constantly inspired by his drive, ever changing style, artistic evolution and the way he supports other artists.”
