Having recently moved to London, Matthew McGuinness (originally from Brooklyn, New York) has shown widely on both sides of the Atlantic. A chef as well as an artist, his kitchen is a source of inspiration and a studio. The kitchen and the shared experience of cooking and eating is the starting point for Matthew’s recent practice. In 2011 he has had a solo show, Who Does Not Work, Does Not Love, at Bearspace gallery in Deptford. In early 2012, he launched his mural project Gourmandizing with The Peckham Space and Persepolis for Through the Peckham Glass, a group show inviting artist to engage with shop keepers and community. He was recently short listed for the Salon Art Prize 2011.
