Matt Small’s unusual portraits are painted directly onto found pieces of metal giving his work a raw, urban immediacy. His subjects are also found, filmed without their knowledge in and around London, enabling Matt Small to bypass the posed, staginess of more traditional portraiture. Matt Small is a passionate believer in social inclusion and that, given the opportunities to be heard and respected, all individuals have something of value to contribute to society.
The paintings of Matt Small are an expression of his world view: by painting young marginalised figures of society he allows the viewer to spend time with these urban characters in the hope that a shared sense of humanity arises, unrestricted by class and social boundaries.
