Matthew Priest

A native of San Antonio, I've lived in San Francisco for over 15 years and previously lived in New York and Paris. I am deeply committed to city culture both today and through the centuries, especially through the lenses of architecture, music, literature, history, and of course, art. While I appreciate abstraction and distilling to essences, I am especially excited by the richness of complex layering and simultaneous meanings.

I'm an artist, an architect, a singer, a composer, and a hell of a nice guy.
