Born and raised in Singapore (1985), Le Matt left his engineering degree course in 2018 to pursue his passion in traditional Western painting. Graduated from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 2011, Matt aims to create art that satisfies the eye and the mind.
He is the recipient of Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple Scholarship and has exhibited at various venues including Esplanade, The Arts House, Aliwal Arts Centre, National Design Centre, Objectifs Gallery, and the Affordable Art Fair.
His ongoing focus revolves around the exploration of the human condition, in particular portraiture and commentaries about social phenomena. His brushwork is often energetic and fragmented as he blurs the line between representation and expression, and navigates between construction and destruction.
Le Matt is versatile in various mediums ranging from graphite, acrylic to oil painting. He also has been coaching professional art classes to adults, conducting workshops & corporate team-bonding events since 2012. In 2020, he took up residency at Goodman Arts Centre where he founded his fine art studio, Art Matters.
