Matthew David Smith
Matthew David Smith an emerging artist living and working in London and Oxford.
He received a BA (Hons) in Fine Art and a Diploma in Foundation Studies in Art and Design from Oxford Brookes University. Matthew is interested in the urban environment, the man-made, and the divide between the new and the old within the city itself. He creates mixed-media works, adding and removing layers of materials to parallel the constant flux of the urban environment. By juxtaposing found objects with more traditional mediums like oil and acrylic, he transforms the everyday into unique works with new meanings.
Matthew has exhibited his works throughout the UK, most recently in a solo show at the Sarah Wiseman Gallery in Oxford. He has also participated in group shows held by galleries including The Hatch (Oxford), Art Fetch (Ireland), and Lacey Contemporary (London), where he was a finalist for the Lacey Contemporary arts prize.
