Executed with astonishingly textured brushstrokes, Matt produces works with a thick visceral painterly quality that feel both abstract and incredibly real and vital.

By painting directly onto used pieces of metal Matt gives his work a raw, urban immediacy. The subjects of his art are also found, filmed without their knowledge (in a way we're choosing not to find a little creepy) in and around London, enabling Matt to bypass the posed, staginess of a lot of portraiture.
