Matthew Craven

Matthew Craven (Grand Rapids, 1981) is a Brooklyn-based artist who uses historical images as a backdrop for his collages and drawings. Craven synthesizes historical images from lost cultures, relics, archaeological remains and landscapes, both well known and extremely ambiguous, to create the colourful and abstract patterns in his works. By doing so he reconfigures the original historical narrative and he creates his own myths that induce a new connection to our past.
