Matt graduated from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts 2008, majoring in Design for Live Performance. Since graduating he has been commissioned in the capacity of sculptor, painter, community artist, puppet, set, costume and event designer for various clients. Most recently he created a large ephemeral public art piece, a 4 metre long ice sculpture as well as a number of kinetic wind sculptures.

I love your work, do you put it in public urban sites / cities? it would be great to see it on location... or suspended, as part of a building parking structure or public building

what i like about the piece is that not only is it interesting because of the form and material but also how it makes you think and the commentary on consumerism.

GENIUS!!!!!!!!!
