MATT ADAMS


- Show Bio -

Matt Adams is a British Artist and Actor. Born in Germany and raised in England he started drawing and painting at a very young age. As a teenager every inch of his bedroom walls and ceiling were covered in paintings, graffiti and sketches.

He took his work to the streets of his local town but quickly felt limited by the typical graffiti style. He gravitated towards painting portraits of women and began to use acrylic paint, chalk, gold leaf, ink and collage in his portraits.

Being completely self taught has defined Matt's style. His artwork knows no bounds, following no rules. Always painting and creating with complete freedom. A keeper of pet Moths, moth symbology features prominently throughout his work.

Often using obscure processes and materials with bespoke handmade papers Matt now hand ages prints with his unique process involving Whiskey, Rum and Cigarette ash.
