The Art Of Matt Lombard

By on November 3, 2009

Matt Lombard is no stranger to the dark underbelly of his native Wisconsin, having played guitar in metal bands for years before moving into the realm of photography and digital manipulation.

His disturbing and feverish work truly fits the title of his website – In The Vein Of God – telling stories and asking the tough questions about the primal cycles of creation, destruction, and decay.

His works are very visceral snapshots through the veil into the dark side of the human experience, peering into the forgotten corners of human nature and instinct to remind us what is really in the mirror looking back.

Over the years Matt has worked with and created art for people such as Cradle of Filth, Michael Ninn, Vasily Konstantin, Cadillac Prairie Productions (Stephen King’s “Dolan’s Cadillac”), Attrition, Roadrunner Records, Bile, Sarah Jezebel Deva, Weston Ochse, Nocturne, Delirium Books, Army of Souls, J.F. Gonzalez, Charles Levi, Voiceprint, David Whitman, Aesma Daeva, Michael Laimo, Two Ton Anvil, Scott and Jeffrey Thomas, Catalyst Press, Brian Knight, Patrick Lestewka, and Triple XXX Records.

Though he no longer plays music, it still remains a huge influence, and he feels his art may be something of a pent-up release of the creativity and emotion he used to pour into his guitar.

Here is a selection of Matt’s work, including a brand new piece called “Trinity” that has yet to be published anywhere else:
