Matthias De Vylder / Bio

I’m a visual artist working in ​graphic design, illustration and tattooing​.

Combining a background in graffiti writing with some years of experience
in graphic design and illustration, my work is largely typography-focused.
This specialization allows me to further explore the beauty of the letterform
in different writing styles.

Traditionally schooled as a woodworker while pursuing a passion for graphic design, I’ve always aimed to balance a unique ​handwritten feel​ with
the precision of modern illustration technology.

The satisfaction of having design come alive in a tangible way
drew me towards working in the print & sign industry for 3+ years, while serving freelance clients with graphics and illustrations.

Instinctively drawn towards expression.
Instinctively aversed to the manipulative nature of traditional advertising.
My work aims to help tell stories of authenticity and
has been featured in publications such as the third Typism book.

The biggest inspiration in my life is the dance between nature and culture.

Thank you​ so much for your interest.
