MATTHEW JOHN ATKINSON: IN CONVERSATION

Atkinson is a painter whose work has an unsettling power allied to a restless use of painterly skill. Where his work has traces of Richter, Polke and Doig he works with a fusion of techniques to produce works by turns poignant, calculating, hopeful and otherworldly.

In this film, Matthew talks to UK Young Artists about his work, the importance of creative development opportunities, and his role as an Ambassador for UKYA.
