Canvas Portfolio

I'm a VJ, audiovisual artist and designer. My artwork has evolved around the creation of loops and the animation of photographs, basing my main exploration on the surreal landscapes, collage and organic textures. I'm also a musician, producer and a tireless researcher in love with the process of imagining what is about to take place.

I understand that the canvas is a framework in itself and I work according to the fact that the piece reaches its maximum potential, resignifying or promoting the message of the musical piece, putting the visual at the service of the music. As a VJ and a Live performer I learned to synchronize music and image with enough impact; my work is based on finding an appropriate concept that summarizes the spirit of a song (or an album) keeping in mind that rhythm and energy are as important as colors, shapes and movement. I like to find the exact point where the visual and the music coincide as pieces that seem to have been created together, even if they are self-sustaining arworks that were built independently.

We can start working from a cover (or any other pre-existing image) or create an ideal visual concept for your track from scratch. I can suggest starting points or we can explore together until we find the perfect raw material. If you prefer, I will keep you up to date on the evolution of the project to ensure that we are moving on the right path.

I can also work in video editing, 3D animation, live visuals design, mapping, live set design with Ableton and Resolume and audio post production.

    Realizing we needed to begin adding canvas artwork to some of our back catalogue of music, we decided to have a new canvas created for one of our harder driving songs called Wild Ride. We immediately thought of heading back to Martin Mattila because he did such a great job on previous canvas artwork. Martin came back with a few options and we quickly decided on the direction and boom, he hit the nail on the head. We loved the new canvas. We highly recommend Martin for any of your artwork needs.

    Martín was excellent! He was very communicative throughout his process so I always knew exactly what was going on. He was very open to suggestions and contributed his own ideas in a way that complimented what I wanted to do. I will definitely come back for more!

    I absolutely loved working with Martín. They were thoughtful and clear while building on my initial them. I enjoyed our back and forth ideas and felt I had an opportunity to incorporate some of my own ideas into the mix. I will definitely hire Martín again.

    Martin never ceases to amaze. He has the ability to listen to the broad strokes of visual design and themes I'm looking for in my music and then turn that into something fresh, original, surprising, and delightful. It's clear that Martin listens deeply to the music he's working with to pick up on the vibe and provide the best visual representation possible to please both the musical artist and the listener. Martin sees the big picture but is also very attentive to the smallest detail.

    Martin has completed Canvas work for 4of our songs and his work has been extraordinary each time. If you are looking for an individual who works quick and is capable of good vision and execution, Martin is the man. We would not hesitate to recommend him for your Canvas project.

    Martin did another fantastic job with creative, original imagery and animated lyrics that brought the music to life. Martin goes above and beyond and puts his heart and soul into his work, and as a musician, I can only be respectful and grateful for his artistic commitment. Martin is easy to communicate with, trustworthy, and always reliable in getting the job done on time.

    Excellent artist, catched the feel of my tune and made a great canvas based on my cover art. Communication was perfect.

    I've worked with Martín on several projects starting with a Canvas, and from there, pushing the boundaries of social media promotional and YouTube videos. We explored new styles and approaches and worked with video editing, 3D realistic animation, sketch style, surreal collage style, watercolor painting style, and he made a lyric video in 2D flat animation for my newest song. Martin is a truly reliable and creative professional. I can't wait to work with him again!
