Matthew Cooper studied illustration at Harrow College of Higher Education and since graduating has worked as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer.

Matthew's illustrations utilise a variety of techniques and media; from collage and found imagery to painting and drawing, from photography to computer based work. He is particularly interested in the use of typographic and strong graphic elements within his work.

Alongside his illustration work, Matthew works as a freelance graphic designer, primarily for the independent music sector. Projects range from sleeve design, through to the design of adverts and promotional material. He has worked with such luminaries as Franz Ferdinand, Arctic Monkeys, Four Tet, Caribou, Floating Points, These New Puritans, Noel Gallagher and Paul McCartney to name just a few.

He finds his inspiration in the work of, amongst others, Herbert Matter, Cy Twombly, Robert Rauschenburg, Kurt Schwitters and the Constructivists; in the music of Will Oldham, John Fahey and Lightning Bolt; and in the piles of books, magazines, records, CDs and assorted junk, both ancient and modern, that threaten to over-run both his home and his Shoreditch studio space.
