Matt Noir Studio 2_edited2_edited.jpg


Matt Noir is a UK painter from Brighton and studied Fine Art BA at Bath School of Art & Design.

He has exhibited in the UK and is a regular contributor to Brighton Artists Open Houses. In 2017 he held his first solo exhibition at Gallery 40, Brighton.

Matt Noir’s paintings investigate the symbolic power of the object, how they are bestowed with meaning, evoke memory and develop conversation.

He works with vintage pieces which have traversed from the once commonplace to a new iconographic status. These objects have an evocative physical presence and therefore can be imbued with personality and character.

Matt Noir is particularly interested in devices of communication and uses these to explore themes of isolation and connection, how we communicate or do not. The objects not only conjure up a sense of nostalgia and comfort but can also be read in the context of the current times.

Matt Noir’s focus is to explore the connections that are derived from the viewer’s relationship with the objects, and to encourage a dialogue between the two.


See exhibition listings below, highlights include; being part of a Berlin Billboard Street Art Project and being published in the Artist Talk magazine.
