Matt Dosa is an abstract artist from North London. Spanning a variety of mediums — paintings, sculptures, prints and murals — his work captures a sense of bold playfulness, an echo of the city where he has lived and worked for over three decades. ‘I’m always searching for the thing that’s beautiful, in landscapes which might seem chaotic or ugly at first glance,’ says Matt. ‘There is a lot of energy in cities, a lot of tension, but also this feeling that, somehow, everything is just about hanging together. I draw a lot of inspiration from that.’ In 2023 Matt created ‘Play It Again’, the artwork concept for Universal Music’s renowned BRITs after party, following on from acclaimed artists Yinka Ilori and Attzs. His four-Storey mural on the Brutalist spiral car park at The Mall, Wood Green – commissioned by the Mayor of London in 2022 – saw him work with hundreds of members of the local community to co-create flags celebrating the diversity of the area. As a muralist and public artist, he has produced commissions for the NHS, fabric London, Decca Records, Great Portland Estates, and the charities Centre Point and Single Homeless Project, amongst others. Last year, Matt was funded by the Arts Council to expand his practice into screen printing and sculpture. His work continues to expand into these new mediums.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
I created four postcards, all in my signature geometric style, but all very much different from each other. I really enjoyed working to such a small scale!
