MATTHEW SWAN: Micro goombas

Matthew Swan's work is concerned with the creation of fictitious and absurd arenas. These arenas are often populated by characters and totems part appropriated from the morass of pop culture and popular paradigms. Swan's Recent drawings and paintings play on the frenetic visuals of heavily costumed Japanese serials, pulp cartoons and the postmodern consumer, as a manifestation of database culture and weird non-narrative.

Matthew Swan (Born in 1987) lives and works in Edinburgh
