Matt Siwerski

Matt Siwerski is a visual artist who works across digital media and textiles. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Dunedin School of Art, New Zealand in 2008.  He was first drawn to textiles by ideas of gender politics and fashion. Inspired by a punk DIY ethos and challenging social constructions, Matt has since combined skillsets of digital modelling and sculpture with the use of a sewing machine. After winning a national textiles award in New Zealand, he moved to Melbourne to further establish his practice. In early 2014 he visited Finland for his first international residency. Matt plans to return to Europe in 2015 to reside in the historical textile city of Łódź, Poland and continue his research and experimentation in contemporary textile art.
