Matthew Billington (Vancouver, BC)
A Western Canadian illustrator/ designer whose work has been shown worldwide, including galleries, firms, studios and publications in Europe, UK, North and South America.
Recognized for his complex color and design theories and a decidedly populist aesthetic, Billington has amassed a cadre of loyal fans and collectors. Working with such clients as EMI records, Urban Outfitters, Wired UK, Weldon Owen publishing and the War Child foundation.
Recent years have seen the artist tend towards more a vintage quality with modern take. This eye-catching, puzzling methodology of cutting and pasting Matthew Billington has produced a body of work that extends into the far reaches of the art and design worlds.
