Originally from Cambridge, Matt Brown graduated from Brighton College of Art & Design in ’92 with a BA(Hons) in Illustration. In his final year he specialised in three-dimensional illustration and animation, leading to a career in special effects, commercial model-making and even bespoke carpentry.
Matt has been exhibiting his work for over 20 years, and throughout his career, has always championed the use of reclaimed and found materials. More recently, his work has focused on his love of the Suffolk coastline and its ramshackle fishermen’s huts, houses and boats. It is this weather-ravaged working environment, with its improvised structures and colour palette, that particularly holds his interest.
