Growing up in the ’80s in the ex-fishing port of Grimsby, Matthew Roy Arnold went on to Study Fine Art at the University of West of England (UWE), Bristol in 2003. Since graduating Arnold has been regularly exhibiting locally and nationally. He has also taught drawing at UWE, University of Bath and independently.
His works have evolved from a conceptual based postmodern art practice, to creating work that is very much in the present, focusing on the work that exists in the here and now. Arnold’s sculpture incorporates an intense mixture of sound, light, drawing, painting and digital technology. His art practice has been enriched through working as a sculptor and fabricator in TV, film and the immersive experience industry.
