My paintings are always partly, if not entirely, unplanned. I create spontaneous landscapes of pattern and form, masking one part of the landscape while I create another; not knowing how the whole will appear until the mask is peeled away.”

- Matt Dosa

Matt Dosa’s practice involves layering spray paint, ink, and acrylic, informed by the graffiti scene where he made his name and learned his craft. Using masking techniques to cover parts of the work while creating others, the whole only becomes clear to the artist as the mask is peeled away. Dosa engages spontaneity, enjoying process and experimentation with new techniques and material. Bright landscapes of pattern and form playfully echo the vibrancy of the city, in loud yet refined colour.  


With his studio based in North London, Matt Dosa works across outdoor projects and murals, canvas and even the walls of art galleries. This varied output includes a two-storey mural in New Brighton — a nod to British seaside idylls that serves the city’s ongoing regeneration — and the noted ‘platinum discs’ installation for Decca Records.
