Harley Artist Leaves Widow, 4 Children in Need

For more than 20 years, Mathew Hintz worked as a contract artist to the Harley-Davidson Styling & Creative Department, creating motorcycle paint designs, helmet graphics, and tank medallions. Mathew passed away unexpectedly at the age of 41 on December 24th, leaving a wife and four children ages 6 – 13. His family needs messages of hope and our financial support.

Mathew has been the Official Artist of Daytona Bike Week since 2015. His 2018 Daytona Bike Week painting was the last piece of artwork he completed before his death.

Mathew created the original cover art for Harley-Davidson Owner Manuals from 2008 to 2017. He designed rocker patches, t-shirts, logos and graphics for HOG, Buell, and Harley-Davidson MotorClothes, as well as anniversary merchandise and models.

How Mathew gave back

Hintz was passionate about leveraging the power of his art for good works. As a father of four, he was focused on assisting children in need. His artwork was auctioned to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) through Harley-Davidson, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Curing Kids Cancer through Mecum Auctions Company.

Hintz co-created two paintings with Reagan Imhoff, now the MDA National Ambassador. Reagan’s mother Jenny spoke at his funeral, sharing how the two families bonded and spent time together over the past few years.

Below is a “note” Reagan wrote to Mathew that she asked Jenny to read at the funeral:

Dear Matt,
You are kind, funny, creative, generous and have the biggest heart! I will miss you so much and I will never forget all of the fun we have had together making messes and creating so many cool pieces of art.  Thank you for all you have taught me and thanks for sharing you love of art.  I will miss you so much.

Love and hugs,

Reagan

Rest in peace, Mathew Hintz. Keep the angels up there on their toes – and help them paint beautiful skies for all to enjoy.
