If you follow live music in Sydney, chances are you’ve been to The legendary Annandale Hotel. On top of that you’ve probably been served a beer or three by Matthew Gillett (that’s Matty G to his close circle). We were surprised to learn that apart from managing The Annandale, Matty has been painting canvasses in his spare time. And on top of that, he is having his debut solo art exhibition at Mart Gallery in Surry Hills from next Thursday 30th October.
Things have been moving forward quickly for Matty, who was featured in a 3 page article in the Sun Herald last Sunday. So we were stoked that he was keen to do a quick interview for MY SYDNEY RIOT, after all we’re up there with The Herald. ha ha! Matt took some time out while preparing for his art show to give us the low down on his art show PEACE INSIDE ANXIETY. Here’s what he had to say.
