Native to Orlando, Florida, Matthew Maher graduated from Seminole State College in 2016 with a Bachelor Degree in Interior Design. During his time leading up to college, he worked as a journeyman carpenter on residential construction projects. His interests began to shift from wood to metal. That’s when Matthew found himself obsessed with metalwork and its tactile nature of sculpture. As an artist apprentice under a master sculptor for several years Matthew became aware of his connection between his hands and material. His ability to illustrate ideas allows him to re-work salvaged parts, mechanical components and raw materials into unique compositions that inspire a new story. Towards the end of 2017, Matthew began Mojo Metalworks LLC; a platform for his artistic talents and creations to be showcased, shared, and channeled to the community.
