Matt is the designer and creator of MAKBUILT, a line of re-purposed, fully funk-tional, one-of-a-kind art. He is also the builder and craftsman responsible for many of Rare Bird’s most prominent features.
As a born and raised Oaklander known best for his unique “boxes of boom;” his love for his city as well as music and sound play a central role in his work.
His most recent pieces include wall art and furniture using various woods, geometric shapes and patterns which draw inspiration from nature and Native American design. Each of MAK’s creations serve as a vibrant invitation to examine the relationship between function and style.
