Matias comes from Switzerland but currently lives and works in London and San Francisco. He uses various mediums and techniques and his portfolio includes three dimensional forms, photographic prints and installations. Looking closely and interpreting is the key to Matias' work, which incorporates the use of symbols. The artist says that his art attempts to draw a line between antiquity and the avant-garde. Therefore art history and perhaps history, understood as narrative story, is important for Matias's timeless work.
