Gina & Matt

Gina and Matt of the aptly-named Philadelphia-based illustration duo Gina & Matt exchange ideas.

Duration: We began collaborating three years ago.
Staff: There are two of us here, and we are represented by Frank Sturges Reps.
Education: We met while attending The Maryland Institute College of Art.
Cultural Influences: In our art and in our life, we have drawn inspiration from a great many people and things that have included: vintage textiles, sixteenth-cen­tury Flemish painting, The American Visionary Arts Museum, Kelly Blair and Joel Holland, Greg Klein, Rachel Salomon, used book stores, The Last Drop Coffee House, Headcase Design, Lord Whimsy, the Standard Tap, Man Man, The Wissahickon, Dave Eggers, Donald Baechler, The Carter Family, The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge, Spur Design, Whitney Sherman and Julian Allen.
Environment: We work in a 20' × 20' brick building. Inside it has exposed beams, wood floors and warm light. The front wall has two sets of French doors that look across to our house. Gina gets the right side and Matt gets the left.
Philosophy: Together we spend our days exchanging ideas and trying to make beautiful things that capture this exchange.
