Matt Burden: He’s Dark! Violent! Perverse! ? {NSFW}

In a note to us, UK artist Matt Burden said that he’s often gets “labelled with things like dark, weird, violent, perverse”. But only elderly folk, babies, and some people who can only be described as chumps would probably be scared off by Burden’s art. While super gritty at times, they’re always excellently composed, and frankly, they’re dark in a way that’s not so much scary as it is just downright surrealist cool. Okay, yeah, it’s true, there’s a lot of nude bodies and private parts, too, but you’re a big kid. You’ll manage, right?

As the Executive Director of Northwest Film Forum in Seattle and Editor-in-Chief of the interdisciplinary arts publication, REDEFINE, much of her work unifies her metaphysical interests with her belief that art can positively transform the self and society. She regularly shares human-centered stories through her storytelling newsletter, RAMBLIN’ WITH VEE! In 2020, she will [hopefully] begin production on a comedic Asian-American series entitled Reckless Spirits.
