Matt Small’s portraits are directly painted on concrete or found metal pieces such as a car hood, a refrigerator door, and more.
Notes about the artist:
“His subjects are also found, filmed without their knowledge in and around London, enabling Matt to bypass the posed, staginess of a lot of portraiture. Executed with astonishingly textured brushstrokes, Matt produces works with a thick visceral painterly quality that feel both abstract and incredibly real and vital.”
