Matthew is a practicing visual artist currently based in Toronto. Educated at the Ontario College of Art & Design, Matthew graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts specializing in photography and concentrating on film based techniques, processing and print. His approach to both subject and aesthetic was helmed by his love of Surrealism and Expressionism.
Much of his work has also been inspired by his love of music and the artwork of album covers. It is in this relationship of the fevered life of rock n roll where Matthew’s work becomes alive. His work has been widely exhibited as he continues to pursue both personal projects and collaborations with musicians. In 2015, Matthew became a member of the Ontario College of Teachers with a BEd from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.
As of 2016/17, he opened a successful bar on Roncesvalles Ave in Toronto called Cider House and launched an online store called Black VVidow Studios for custom shirt printing.
