Mat Maitland is a collage artist based in London. His collage images and films have been commissioned by a wide range of clients including Kenzo, Hunter, Interview Magazine, Tate Gallery, Nike, Printemps Paris, Vogue Japan, English National Opera, Le Monde, L’Officiel, Hero and Please Magazine.
“This strand of my career began as a hobby really and a creative outlet away from art directing and designing music projects, one of which was the catalyst for following this visual path – Goldfrapp’s ‘Black Cherry’ album. Over time my collage images have evolved into something less ‘cut and paste’ and more refined but essentially still use the same ethos of unplanned accidents using a desperate source of found library imagery – apart from when a specific element is needed which would be shot. The images and films most often combine my love of surrealism and pop and have allowed me to work with more fashion orientated clients.”
