artist Matthew Craven (b.1981) creates bold, enigmatic work that suggests
imagined histories and lost civilisations. Working with vintage textbooks and
imagery he creates searing, repeated patterns around collaged historical images
of masks, tools, pots and statues. Represented by DCKT Contemporary in New
York, Craven has had numerous solo shows across the USA and was one of the
standout artists from this year’s Volta art shows in New York and Basel.
We recently collaborated with him on a series of looks for London-based menswear designer A.Sauvage, which can be seen at the bottom, below the examples of Matthew's work. A print campaign will follow later this year when the SS2015 collection goes on sale.
