Matthew Richardson portrait

Matthew Richardson originally studied Graphic Design (BA) at Middlesex University, followed by Illustration (PG) at Central St. Martins, and Fine Art (MA) at UWIC, Cardiff. His practice is diverse and uses photography, film, sound, assemblage and collage to investigate how narratives shift in their construction and re-telling and through changes in time and context, often explored across visual and narrative forms – object-book-print-sound-film.


He has created work across differing publishing, exhibition and design contexts. Commissions include projects with the V&A, British Library, Folio and the Poetry Society and work has been shown at Tactile Bosch, g39 and Oriel Davies and most recently in ‘Adaptation’ at Transition Gallery and ‘Strange Pilgrimage’ at The Beaney, Canterbury. Matthew has lectured at art colleges across the UK and currently teaches part time at Norwich University of the Arts on the BA (Hons) Illustration course.
