|Message from Mateo Hevezi
Welcome to my personal archive at PBase.com.
I am an American-born independent artist, non-fiction writer, editor and instructor with 30+ years experience.
I am pleased to announce my own live cooking show called, "Friday with Mateo." It premiered January 3, 2020 (6pm Vietnam time).
I will still make photos, but teaching healthy cooking is also a big part of my life, and now I am sharing my recipes with the world online. My focus is on "Food as Medicine" and "Eat to Beat Disease."
Season 2 was cut short due to visa challenges in Vietnam's immigration system following CV19.
I have relocated to Cambodia and will resume Season 2 in Summer 2023 once my kitchen is stocked, locked and ready to rock.
Please join me and ...LETS EAT!!!
COMING SOON TO CAMBODIA
My current solo exhibition is titled "AGNOSCO - Spirits Among Us." The AGNOSCO exhibition most recently showed at galleries in and around Tokyo and Kanagawa Prefecture in Japan. In 2020, I am planning to bring selections from the AGNOSCO exhibition -- a mixture of 55 color and B&W prints -- to art galleries in Vietnam.

Shot by a Marine is in final stages of production and is targeted for publication in 2023.
