Matt Politano


I grew up in a family of artists, so I really had no choice in the matter. Drawn to surrealism at an early age, and later inspired by Tim Walker and Ellen Kooi, my work has often strayed into the world of the imaginary.

I will often create my images from multiple pieces; photo-realistic assemblages of parts that make up the whole I see in my mind’s eye – rather than what I see in the camera’s viewfinder. Some of my images are fairly straightforward photographs; others are fabrications. Most fall somewhere in between. Consider them a journey through places and spaces both real and imagined.

All of my prints are produced to fine art standards, are individually numbered and signed, and come with a signed certificate of authenticity. My work is held in private collections throughout North America, the U.K. and Japan.
