I realize that I said “Half of it’s…” four times.
I’m well aware that there should only be two halves.
Matt Bero, also known as the “Moose-Maker,” is a designer, artist, and public art apostle.
Matt is a designer and artist originally from Green Bay, WI. Before making the jump to full-time entrepreneur in November of 2016, he spent 5 years at Associated Bank learning the ins and outs of a corporate organization while also building his side hustle. With a background in both graphic design and certifications in User Experience and Usability Analysis, Matt has grown a following not just for his business but also for his work in the community. In 2016, he helped raised over $18,000 for public art and before that, enriched Olde Main with a towering building mural: Morty the Moose.
His passion is helping to improve communities in creative ways. After completing "Morty the Moose," Matt felt that other creatives should have opportunities to contribute in a creative way too. It was then that the spark for Catalyst Art Show formed.
Matt was born and raised in the Bay of Green, but has since moved to the Windy City where he creates content for the Lincolnwood Library.
