LA-Based Stencil Artist Mathew Curran Unveils “SHRED” 
at Hierarchy April 19th
Renowned LA-based artist Mathew Curran opens “SHRED” a solo exhibition on April 19th at Hierarchy, a special exhibition venue and project from Washington, DC based artist group No Kings Collective in partnership with Napoleon Bistro. 
Through his work, Curran brings stencil to life, creating unique large-scale murals in a process where he cuts away, shredding his chosen medium to get to the root of his art. As spaces become more urbanized with new homes and longer streets, wildlife and nature have receded. In “SHRED,” Matt Curran imagines the natural world pushing back into the city, back against the new homes, larger buildings, longer streets. He envisions birds soaring above factories, flowers breaking through the cracks of an old brick wall, fish making their way back through water systems. Curran captures the struggle for the historically natural to find its place in an unnatural landscape through his unique stencil work.

About Mathew Curran
Mathew Curran is a Los Angeles based muralist and fine artist. His work transcends a half dozen different mediums and subject areas, while focusing primarily on precise stencil work. Born in Northamptonshire, England, Curran came to the United States as a teenager, he was influenced by American teen skateboarding culture, with its random and unchecked energy and raw sense of possibility. Studying fine art and graphic design at UNC Greensboro, Curran’s style evolved to incorporate techniques with wood, spray paint and ink. After graduation, he became devoted to detailed stencil work, developing a style based on forceful lines and subtle uses of background color combining personal experiences with technique. He also works with the well-known International artist collective Army of Snipers Crew and his work has been displayed in galleries from his native England to Tokyo.
