About the Artist

Mattia Guarnera MaCcarthy (b.1999, UK) draws on visual language taken from sports and entertainment as a catalyst to explore and better understand the broader nuances of the everyday human condition; taking the sport out of sporting. Mattia's work address a variety of contemporary themes such as identity, expression, competition, masculinity and stardom. He does so by homing into often overlooked scenes and moments which he believes evoke interesting allegorical, ideological and philosophical debates that could otherwise be difficult to express. This results in outcomes which appear mystically vague with nothing seeming set or conclusive, existing in a state of limbo. Mattia does so in an attempt to reflects a Buddhist like or Carl Yung-esque ideology which embraces yet grapples with parallels such good and evil, pain and glory, digital and real, Clear and vague. Mattia lives and works in London, UK.
