About

Hoof + Claw is the studio - shop of Matthew Richardson.

I am a UK artist + Illustrator working across physical and digital media.The work in Hoof + Claw is the physical stuff (!) - work that has been hand cut, pasted, printed, moulded, fired, painted and assembled. Some work develops through experimenting with material that might otherwise be discarded and other pieces have been made as parts or props in other work. The work is generally smallish in scale. Some collages are offered as part of Artist Support Pledge. 5% of all sales go to Mind 

I studied at Middlesex University, Central St Martins and Cardiff University and have taught at UCA Maidstone, Norwich University of Arts and the RCA.  Work has been shown at G39, Oriel Davies, Transition and Outpost, and commissions include projects with the V&A, British Library and the Poetry Society.
