Taking 'mixed media' to a newly digitalised level, artist/illustrator London based Mat Maitland's latest series combines vibrant colours and mismatched collage to create a half minimalist, half maximalist approach to the contemporary.

Objects of desire are arranged with a brash surrealism against exotic landscapes or gold arched drawing rooms, simultaneously playing with the idea of glamour, exploring the triviality of a consumerist nature, and feeding upon our natural appetite for pleasure. Everything is assembled in a lucid composition with a distinct palette or subject choice the concern behind the images which, collectively, offer a celebration of pleasure-in-itself.
