Born and raised at the mouth of Topanga Canyon, Matt

Wessen always had a keen eye for documenting LA

lifestyle and surfing scenes. He lives and breaths the ocean

and reflects this in his artwork. Skip Engblom, Venice don

and a surf/skate icon (known by most as character Heath

Ledger played in Lords of Dogtown), calls Wessen a friend

and frequent collaborator. “Matt’s ability to look at stuff is

really unique,” he says. “It’s almost like he’s painting with

his camera. To classify him as only a photographer would

not be valid.” Together they co-curated over seven

massively ambitious showcases that comprise of 55+ local

artists, their practice includes re-purposing historic

buildings into art galleries all the way from Venice Beach to

Tokyo. Someone who Barry McGee— a fellow multimedia

virtuoso and celebrated contrarian—labels as the

“foremost artist working today in capturing the LA

underground. Matt’s LA County series is brutally honest.”

When Matt’s not documenting the coast, he’s working with

some of the biggest brands, be it shooting with them or

overseeing their creative direction for marketing

campaigns and beyond.
