About Matthew Weinstein

Matthew Weinstein makes 3-D musical animations that he calls “animated cabarets.” Starting with a script and song lyrics, Weinstein develops characters, conceptualizes the sets and animation, selects actors, and assembles a band for the soundtrack. With these elements are in place, he produces the animation. Weinstein then uses the digital environments he has created for the animations as the basis for traditional paintings and photographs. Weinstein’s interest lies in the increasingly blurred boundary between the real and the imaginary, art and entertainment.

American, b. 1964, New York, New York, based in Brooklyn, New York
