Mathew Tom American-Chinese, b. 1984

Mathew Tom is a New York-based multi-disciplinary artist. Tom draws inspiration from his dual cultural heritage, combining Eastern and Western imagery, to create new interpretations, meanings and experiences. 


His practice is underscored by a fascination with what he calls 'universal images' - the ability for images to attract an audience regardless of the time period or location. Tom's saturated oil paintings seamlessly combine imagery and motif, isolated from their historical and geographical origin, to be recognised and experienced in an entirely new context.


In 2011 Tom graduated from the University of London with a MFA. Since then he has exhibited four solo exhibitions and has been involved in group shows and art fairs widely across the US and the UK.
