Taj

Traditional patterns, ornaments and symbols and forgotten images are the materials of the artists compositions, he describes his works as a monologue of the soul. The carpets the artists paints are traditionally woven by women and placed on the ground for people to walk on. Matteo subverts this visual by creating vertical artworks; celebrating women. His juxtaposition of traditional art and contemporary practice provide a platform connecting history, cultures and ideas.

From a small limited edition of 30, printed onto 330gsm Somerset Enhanced Velvet paper, the piece is signed and numbered by the artist.

    Your Framing Options at entergallery.com

    Box framing is provided with all our online framing, creating a distance between the glass and your artwork, so no risk of ink transfer to the pane. it's the perfect, gallery grade choice for limited edition prints or original artworks.

    Shadow float mounting is an option at our website, to give the appearance of an artwork floating within the frame. The mount – an archival foam core – creates depth too, by casting a shadow beneath the artwork. We highly recommend using a float mount when framing artwork with deckled (hand-torn) edges.

    As always, all our materials are sustainable and archival to keep your artwork in mint condition and perfectly presented. Simply choose from our white or black float framing options, before adding to basket.

    Glazing our UK framing orders are shipped with glass. For our customers outside the UK we frame with gallery grade cast acrylic offering superb clarity and protection.

    About the artist
    +

    A French artist based in Montreal, Mateo is best known for his intricate street art that combines ancient ornamentation and patterns. His work is inspired by his explorations across the world and his individual pursuit of enlightenment and truth. Mateo delicately ponders the complexities of the human condition in his pieces with references to ancient symbolism. 

    Questions concerning mass consumerism and culture erasure are threaded throughout his work, adding spiritual layers to visually stunning pieces. Although inspired by eastern traditionalism, Mateo isn’t afraid to subvert the cultural norm to say exactly what he wants to say. His iconic carpets, historically woven by women, now depict women. Detailed and intense, they are carpets that are hung vertically instead of walked upon. Mateo’s reverence for the foundations of wisdom that our society was built on runs throughout his progressive and powerful work. Thoughtfully provocative and visually exquisite.
