Bio <


Matt Crookshank is a Canadian painter, animator, digital artist and master of all things mystical. He dares to paint fearlessly and without restraint.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the prestigious program at Queen's University, Crookshank worked as an assistant to Vancouver conceptual superstar Ken Lum (famous for his Guggenheim Fellowship). Crookshank has also teamed up with high profile curators Jamie Angell, Wil Kucey and RM Vaughan to showcase his colorfully explosive paintings in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, London, Switzerland, Mexico and Toronto over the past 10 years.

He has been called “one of the most important Canadian painters“ in the Globe and Mail, the National Post, Toronto Star and Canadian Art; and remains in the limelight as one of the best ones to watch in Carte Blanche, an exclusive hardcover book selected by the jury of the Magenta Foundation, which saw their launch at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art in Toronto.


Represented by General Hardware Gallery inToronto, and Galería Anomalía/Hector Espinosa in Mexico City.
