Throughout his twenty-four year career of painting murals, Matthew Willey has brought original, one-of-a-kind beauty to the walls of homes and businesses throughout the US. By combining the abilities of designer, scenic artist and painter, the murals seem to grow, one stroke, one texture at a time, as he weaves the walls through his imagination.
Currently, Matthew is hand-painting 50,000 honeybees- the number in a healthy, thriving hive- in a series of 40-50 murals around the world to raise awareness about their struggle, and celebrate their incredible behaviors. An experience with one, tiny, honeybee has grown into an initiative about the power of connection.
Matthew’s work has been featured in The New York Times, Veranda Magazine, Interior Design Magazine and many other publications.
