We are big fans of Matt Small's colourful portrait work and are excited to see he has a new solo show opening this Thursday 26th March at Black Rat Gallery in East London. Matts’ latest body of work ‘Youngstarrs’ is an exploration on the themes of youth and hope.
"Each and everyone of us has a story, and all our stories begin in our childhood. The show focuses on the young child as an everlasting symbol of hope and seeks to illustrate the innate potential in each and every one of us."

Matt Small graduated from the Royal College of Art and his unique style of portraiture has gained him a huge following and widespread critical acclaim. He was runner up in the BP portrait award and winner of the Villers David prize. His work is in numerous collections worldwide including the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Youngstarrs previews on March 26th from 6.30pm to 9.30pm. The exhibition continues until April 17th.
