There’s this energy and dynamism that comes from how the paint moves and to me, that’s become appropriate to what I’m trying to say about the young people that I paint’- Matt SmallMatt chooses to bring the physical elements of the city that surround him directly into his work, using scrap metals as his chosen canvas. The use of something that has no value in society then re-appropriating it to give a new context is a phenomenal way of thinking and reflects his subjects’ stories in an original way. G-Shocks collaboration with Matt will showcase a large mobile phone with a half clear and half pixalated image of Matt’s artwork. This display has been used to encourage a real life interaction with art, rather than a two dimensional interpretation viewed online. Matt Small and G-Shock are the perfect duo, their non-conforming attitudes to the restricted social and society boundaries speak louder than words. This unison of talent and craft begs you to speak out and show your true colours. The exhibition launches tonight, from 7pm at the G-SHOCK East Store, Truman Brewery. By James Tissiman
