Mathew says, "My work is heavily influenced by urban American culture, with its random and unchecked energy and raw sense of possibility. I work with cardboard, spray paint, ink and photography. My work involves intricate stencil cutting, which I use to capture the virility and stamina of street life. My recent projects focus on reintroducing wildlife back into our urban landscape area.
