Matt Hawker

University of Chester (MA in Fine Art , 2017)

Matt Hawker is a contemporary artist based in the North West of England specialising in bold, colourful abstracted landscapes.

Studying Fine Art at University of Chester he graduated with a First-Class Honours and was also awarded the University art prize. Inspired by this, and wishing to develop his practice further, he went on to complete Masters Degree in Fine Art.

Being born and living in the beautiful historic city of Chester he has always been fascinated by the constant regeneration that occurs around him everyday, the modernisation that forces the past to conform to present day standards.

His subject matter explores the contrast between these landscapes, and how as humans we interact with these spaces. A spontaneous and intuitive layering process is used not only to apply paint but to also remove it in order to reveal a glimpse into the previous layers, building a rich history into each piece.
Inspired by bold colours and textures reminiscent of graffiti he intends to blur the boundary between fine art and street art through abstraction, and by adopting this new language he attempts to renew and challenge the conventions of landscape painting.
