Matt Noir is a UK painter from Brighton with a BA in Fine Art from Bath School of Art & Design.
He uses the symbolic power of the object to explore themes of isolation, connection, and communication.
Matt Noir works with early-to-mid 20th century pieces, that have a technical function, but are also objects of beauty and elegance, which can be imbued with personality and character.
He is particularly interested in devices of communication and the connections that are derived through the viewer’s relationship with them - as well as the objects' own signifiers - to develop a dialogue between the objects and the onlooker and to create a conversation.
Matt Noir has exhibited in England and is a regular contributor to Brighton Artists Open Houses. In 2017 he held his first major solo exhibition at Gallery 40, Brighton.
Recently, he has also exhibited his work through virtual exhibitions and online platforms and has been published in Artist Talk magazine.
