Matej Anzin

he / him
Seattle, United States


Matej grew up in Communist Yugoslavia where classical and impressionistic art thrived. As the country split by war Matej and his family lived in Slovenia, one of the six republics of Yugoslavia. 

Matej started expressing himself through drawing and painting at an early age. He loved to be active with his hands.  At the age of 10, his father died and the war in Yugoslavia soon followed. Due to the encouragement and support from his mom he continued to grow as an artist during his teenage years and beyond. The art was on one hand his refuge and on the other hand a luxury that his family could barely afford. He spent days and nights drawing portraits and learning about perspective through classical masters' work. He became a scholar of Slovenian impressionists. After a few local workshops he decided to attend a very prestige school for design and photography in Ljubljana where he graduated from the Industrial Design program. Fascinated by the famous Slovenian impressionists he started his own journey of impressionism.
His adventure began at the age of 23 when he decided to leave Europe seeking an opportunity to share his gifts and inspire humanity. After quite a few tumultuous years in Los Angeles and other cities he finally found stable ground, his inspiration was refreshed. As a constant observer of life he found a brand new way to express his views, his understanding of socio-political issues, and the ways of the universe. Because of that, his painting style expanded to modern and abstract art.
