Matthew Richardson

Illustrator + Artist
I work across physical and digital media, seeing how things fit, mix and collide through collage and assemblage. I’m UK-based and grew up in London where I went to Middlesex University and Central St. Martins. Since then, I’ve been pretty nomadic and lived in Wales, Shropshire, Kent and I’m currently based in Norwich.


Clients include: V&A, Penguin, The London Coliseum, The New York Times, The British Library, The Poetry Society, World of Interiors, BBC, Granta and EMI. I’ve  won an AOI Gold and a V&A Illustration Award for editorial and book illustration, and a House of Illustration / Folio Award to illustrate ‘The Outsider’ by Albert Camus for Folio.

I have taught part-time  at a number of art colleges including UCA Maidstone, UWIC Cardiff, Norwich University of Arts and the RCA. Alongside illustration, I also make collages, assemblages, animations and publications. I’ve shown at various galleries, including MOMA Wales, Phoenix, Oriel Davies, Transition and Outpost. You can see this work on my art website: Halfhidden.com.

Collages, prints and small editions are available in my shop: Hoof + Claw Studio

I am represented by Heart in London and New York. Please get in touch with them to chat about commissioning.
