About

Matt Niebuhr is an artist and architectural designer living and working in Des Moines, Iowa.

.../miscellaneous - is a personal journal, self educational in nature, containing notes and images that inspire me, or that I wish to learn more about - as such, it includes works by other people as noted with full acknowledgment and credit to authors and sources where possible.

I also share content of my own making that I think is worth sharing with a larger audience. If there is any work by others who object to having their work posted here, I will remove the content if so requested.

Visit Matt Niebuhr - Works a site featuring my work exclusively. I established a studio practice pursuing personal work in the summer of 2012 named "West Branch Studio". In 2013 I became a contributing artist and designer with RDG Dahlquist Art Studio and RDG Planning and Design, a multidisciplinary design firm.

Place of the upside down by Roger Ballen
Just received this print today - worth every penny!  Oddness Story sort of to go with it -  
This morning, when the mailman was delivering the mail to our front door, he knocks on the door (which seemed sort of odd)  and he smiles and hands me the package and he says - “hey - looks like your getting some art” - as he sort of carefully reaches into the mail bag .. 
Um yeah - I’m expecting some soon,  I’m pretty excited to see how it looks…. and he said you know we love that place here at work (the post office - in Portland) - we usually like to exchange gift certificates to get cool stuff there  (20 x 200)….  
And he goes on to describe the last print he got was a cool painting of a stack of video tapes and stuff - so 70’-80’s - really great stuff.  I’m guessing it’s this
 
VHS by Hollis Brown Thornton…
So I said yeah, I’m excited - it’s a Roger Ballen print - I’m a big fan …  do you know his work?   I couldn’t pass up the chance to have a little print.  He wasn’t sure about who that was - so I opened the package there on the porch and we both took a bit to look at the print…
Nice pick…  Yeah.  
Anyway - thought it was cool the mailman knows the 20x200 for more than just delivering the goods!
