Matthew Kurz



Matthew Kurz is a talented Sedalia, MO artist who has overcome a huge amount of obstacles in his life. He was involved in an automobile accident in 2006 and sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Matthew lost the use of his right hand, which—prior to his accident—he used to draw and paint. But through his determination to continue creating the art he loves, Matthew learned to paint using his left hand.

Today he attends and thrives at art school and is making improvements daily while creating amazing works of art. Matthew’s wonderful mark of laying down paint goes back historically to what Van Gogh and Gauguin were doing. He’s really in that expressionist line.
