Spadecaller (Matt Schwartz) is the pseudonym he uses for his visual art, writing, poetry, and video creations; initially, the name came about by his direct approach on subjects that focus on humanitarian issues that impact our world today. He's known to call a spade a spade.
"True artists never bow to trend or the demands forced upon them by politics and ideology. I will not apologize for or defer from creating art that is faithful to my personal vision of the world. The idea that artists need to hide from the world in order to create beauty is also repugnant to me. Truth is beauty; even when it is sad or disturbing. We live in an intrusive society; and must wake up to this fact or fall victim to its control."
His writing, videos, and artwork call "a spade a spade." Through a vast library of video creations, he showcases digital art, paintings, poetry, and photography on Youtube (thespadecaller) .
