Making a Statement with Mixed Media – Matthew Small’s Street Art
Matthew Small is a London-based street artist who works mainly with mixed media on found metal. “Found” metal is simply recycled metal and mixed media could be anything from traditional oil paint to human hair to rubbish. Street art may be defined as art on the street that’s not graffiti. In this respect, Matthew work certainly qualifies. When asked of his opinion on street art, Matthew replies: “I think it’s always going to be out there. It’s always going to come and go. It began at the grass roots level and it’s a pity that some of the people it was intended for no longer have access to it. Very rarely does an art scene live forever but I think street art is always going to be around in some form.”
