Born in France in 1985, Mateo completed a master degree of Art in Toulouse, he heads to Montreal in 2008 to work as a graphic designer. Then he start long trip around South America where he still produce and paints murals with the wire of its meetings.
Back in Montreal he decided to devote himself entirely to art. His practise has always evolved between streets and studio, largely influenced by the Street Art movement with a total freedom of materials.
We can see his work in France, Quebec, United States, Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Argentine, Chili, Uruguay, Bolivie, Latvia…
Visual artist from the street, Mateo questions the perception of the world which surrounds us and the impact of the traditional on our western societies. His humanistic approach proposes to reconnect with fundamental inspirations, a bridge to our deep origins as well as a romanticism erased in our contemporary society.
Traditional patterns, ornaments, travel relics, symbols, forgotten images are the raw material of a personal composition, a monolog of the soul, in search of timeless knowledge.
