Introducing: Matt Tumlinson

Introducing: Matt Tumlinson

Matt Tumlinson is a quiet, unassuming artist I met during an arts festival, in Boerne, Texas. His work is unique. I had never seen this concept before. Matt paints on the back of spent bullet casings creating very unusual, but very Texan-esque paintings.

Matt arranges bullet casings in perfect symmetry before applying acrylics in detail to create his masterpieces. Some of his pieces I saw, in the Texas Treasures Fine Art Gallery, ranged in size from small pieces (approx A4 size) to much larger pieces (approx A1 size).

I must say that the juxtaposition of bullet casings vs African wildlife trophy hunting had many emotions racing through me, but I can’t take away the acknowledgement of Matt’s creativity and talent.

Matt was busy painting this large bullet-painting of an old cowboy during the show. It was incredible to watch his painstaking love of detail. The back of the casings added a very interesting texture as well as a rich, warm glow to his acrylics.
