Matthew Griffin

Born 1976 Bendigo, Victoria. Lives and works Brazil.


Matthew Griffin’s practice incorporates a punk aesthetic of scavenged materials haphazardly constructed into riotous installations and objects that hover between tomfoolery and anarchism.

Griffin’s work has been shown in The Financial Report, Artspace, Sydney (2013); On top of the world: Flags for Melbourne and unMagazine, part of Melbourne Now, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2013); Tele-Vision Eyes, Penrith Regional Gallery, Sydney (2010); New 09, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2009); Laughing in a Foreign Language, Hayward Gallery, London (2008); and Primavera, MCA, Sydney (2006).
