Matthew Ritchie is an artist born in London, England, now residing in New York.He is an artist mostly known as a painter. His works based on his drawings that he scans and blows them up into three-dimensional figures, then reshapes. " Ritchies work deals with the idea of information being "on the surface", and information is also the subjet of his work. His work itself consists of paintings, wall drawings, light boxes, sculptures, and projections. His first solo show "Working Model brought him into the contemporary art world where he intertwined historical and ideoligical belief systems as a common thread. Since his first show he has blossomed as an artist and continues to make art by thinking out of the box and taking ordinary things to the next level.
