The show located in his mums house in Torquay, will feature personal works never seen before with an exclusive installation. In keeping with previous installations, visitors are invited to directly engage with the work, see it smell it and feel it.
Matt Mahdavi was born in Torquay in 1990. he is known for his personal, often controversial, biographical works that describe the world through the eyes of a 20 something year old growing up in a small seaside town. Installation, photography, and poetry. Drawing on personal experiences with loss and love of the stars, Mahdavi’s art is disarming in its candour, touching on such fundamental issues as reality, human emotion and cosmic exploration. Melding art and technology in ways that provoke feelings of another world. His works Mud And Dust 2016 and Terminal 2017 have achieved early popular success in contemporary British art. Mahdavi has incorporated unusual marketing strategies into a number of his works; in 2016 he invited 100 people to Urban Outfitters where he surprised them with a solo exhibition along side the expecting Saturday customers. Years later, Matt is still based in Torquay and invites everyone to his mums house for a very personal showing of work.
