SPOTLIGHT: Matt Beck and the hyper-futurism of fine art

Matt Beck, also known as CLQQNG , is a San Diego-based multi-hyphenate, whose personal graphic work Beck describes as "fine art mimicking graphic design." With grandiose designs that navigate through many technological eras and environments under one lens, however, ‘mimicry’ would be our last description.

Through delicate composition and grace to detail, Beck’s pieces reflect both the traditional elegance of fine art and the cutting edge sleekness of a hyper-digital world with equal strength, two visions of the natural past and the cold future coalesced to form one visual landscape.
