Madcoast is Matt Alazia, a Designer-Maker based in Southampton.
Most of my work has been created to experiment with different media. The screen name Madcoast was originally used for my DeviantArt profile to showcase my concept work.
Combing digital art with an interest in using wood and card to create art. I have developed a process to create digital & analogue version of a design.
Analogue – Relief Prints, Stencil Art & Recycled Material
I design a geometric pattern then cut a stencil design or transfer the design on to a cutting medium with copy paper. Then create Relief prints or stencilled outline on recycled card, which I then colour.
Vector – Digital Art
I scan my geometric patterns or relief prints then using GIMP & Inkscape a digital version is created.
My interest in digital art originally was to create prints and postcards, based on digital art- photographs. evolving later in to using different materials and large format high resolution digital artwork uploaded to RedBubble to create functional artwork.
