An LC Holden Torana Bonnet that was a spare for his 2 door GTR. Matt took a years break prior to doing this piece. once again being burnt out from over doing the airbrush medium. Matt at the time thought that his skills would have slipped and it would take him time to get his skills back upto a certain level... Obviously not.
This was done around 2004/5 and is considered one of Matts best pieces.
Matt Jonas was voted the #1 airbrush artist and signwriter in Australia. From the age of 8, Matt’s grandfather taught him how to write with a calligraphy pen as Lionel Jonas was also a signwriter who taught Matt’s teacher at trade school also. Matt may of had a certain amount of “god given” talent, but it has taken a journey of 25 yrs thus far to fine tune and persist with bettering his skills to develop the hyper realism you see today. It’s true “anyone can be an artist” but very few become highly skilled like Matt and even fewer appreciate what it takes to grind their way to the top.
You're not “just buying art” when you purchase from Matt. Your buying a masterpiece from which qualities in such fields have been pasted down from masters in their field and in the DNA. Every piece of Matt’s works will transcend time and history that this cheap pop culture trying to destroy.
