SAHARA Las Vegas recently revealed a new set of artwork and a collection of clothing by Matt McCormick for the property.
The mixed media of oils and acrylic paintings depicted cowboys and their horses, honoring the western history of Nevada.
“The artwork I created for the Sahara [Las Vegas] is inspired by the Sahara,” explains Matt. “It is a body of work that recalls Americanism in imagery, both the good and the bad. With this collection, I wanted to highlight the roots of Vegas. My paintings show the city’s outskirts representing its history, layers, and roots.
The clothing collection features graphics of Matt’s art reimagined on garments for sale in its shop.
Matt McCormick is a multimedia artist whose artwork assimilates a diversity of cultural influences from the American West into an artistic vision. His body of work reflects the conflicting histories of Western culture. The artist embraces gritty aspects, homestead towns, gold rush bonanzas, and 1950s Hollywood glamour that captivated the country’s collective imagination.
