Matthew Stradling is represented in many art collections in Europe, America, and the Far and Middle East. Born in Hertfordshire in south-east England, he gained a first class honours degree from St. Martin's School of Art and a Masters in Fine Art from Reading University.
Matthew now works from his studio in North London. His work has been exhibited internationally and he has had fourteen solo exhibitions in London, Liverpool, Paris and Ottawa.
Matthew Stradling paints the body in sumptuous detail. The jewel-like colours belie the sometimes painful content. He delves into the realms of sex and death with delectation, making the painted flesh sparkle even it it speaks of its own fragility.
