Matthew Dawn

Matthew Dawn (°1989) is een Belgische graffiti artiest.
Zijn stijl is bekend om zijn felle, kleurrijke werken met een vorm van realisme die zelden wordt geassocieerd met graffiti.

. Most of my time is spent painting murals or teaching graffiti workshops to a large variety of clients. As my reputation as a graffiti artist builds and spreads, my career moves towards bigger projects. Currently I can proudly say I have worked for companies the likes of NIKE ELC, Citroën, Xior and several major event organisers. I can guarantee there remains little doubt about my capabilities and level of professionalism.

I’ve studied ‘Digital Arts and Entertainment’, ‘Business Management’ and ‘Animation’ in college. Dropped out of the latter two because I wasn’t satisfied and wanted to start on my own. I began my career designing and selling T-shirts under the name ‘DAWN clothing’. When my graffiti art started to gain traction, I flipped the script and taught graffiti workshops. In a short time, I grew towards bigger and more commercial projects.

Prinsenhof Creesersweg

Prinsenhof Creesersweg

Deze mural door A Squid Called Sebastian bevindt zich in het Genste Prinsenhof, een van de oudste overgebleven delen van de stad. Gelegen aan de Creesersweg fleurt deze de voetgangersdoorgang op en houdt een wakend oogje in het zeil voor alle passanten. Dit was de eerste mural die we met wallin’ realiseerden. We hadden direct het geluk dit in samen werking te mogen doen met en Gentse reus als A Squid Called sebastian.

De muur werd eerder met graffiti bespoten en werd gebruikt als drop-spot voor sluikstorters. Met dit project wouden wit tegen gaan en de doorgang van de nodige kleur voorzien.
