Matt Alexander Ray
Matt began his training in traditional drawing and painting methods in 2005, studying at a number of contemporary ateliers in the UK and Europe.
In recent years Matt’s main focus has been still life, though he also has interests in portraiture and landscape. Influenced by traditional oil painting techniques, he uses multiple layers of paint to achieve deeply atmospheric compositions, combined with an economy of means to achieve lifelike representation with a minimum of brushwork.
Matt's work hangs in private collections in the UK and Asia. Though only recently turning professional, he has already won recognition in a number of prestigious competitions and exhibitions.
