Who is Matthew?
Matthew is regarded as ‘ The greatest black art model of his generation. No style or method , but using no way as way. He started modelling in 2003 and hasn’t stopped. A self taught artist in his own right, when not in the ring taking down the competition.. Matthew battled with a stammer from aged 6 but didn’t let this hold him back.
The Matthew Event was launched in June 2009 with the help of Philip Cundal to name a few. Having spend many hours at the gym putting on muscle and embracing his muscular thick build. He also launched his RODIN:Life Class event with fellow models Lorraine Smith and Italian film maker Lidia . Matthew now demands £250 an hour for London’s most exclusive woman to have him host and pose for their Hen-Parties. They all say the experience wasworth every penny.
World renowned artist’s Jane McAdam Freud, Maggi Hambling CBE, Catherine Goodman and James Lloyd have requested Matthew on more then one occasion and this shows his demand even when there’s 100 models to choose from at any given day.
