Last year Matthew Calandra drew up nearly 70 portraits as part of a Cicada Press residency he was invited to be part of. The resulting body of works includes portraits of artists such as Ian Grant, Vernon Ah-Kee, Michael Kempson, Elisabeth Cummings and many more. The entire series was exhibited at Gaffa Gallery to showcase the results of the residency.
Here is a little video that was shot from Matthew’s perspective while he was drawing up a portrait of Rafael Butron. The camera was mounted to Matt’s head, so it’s a bit shaky at times.
