Matthew Hawkins is a graphic artist living and working in London. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2001 he has developed a strong visual identity that incorporates a broad spectrum of influences and disciplines, all of which are consolidated by his passion for drawing.

Working predominantly with pencil, pen and markers he constructs striking imagery from an unexpected combination of doodles, sketches and studies.

The everyday, historical reference, the figure in the landscape, commonplace, existence, beauty, and the surreal are ever present.  These variants are presented in a vibrant and confrontational graphic language.
His work has been featured in numerous publications including Creative Review, It’s Nice That, Grafik Magazine, Varoom Magazine, Dazed & Confused and This is a Magazine. 

Matthew has nearly 20 years teaching experience and has been lecturing at Camberwell College of Arts since 2007. He is currently a Senior Lecturer and Year Co-ordinator across disciplines on the design programme.

In 2018 Matthew set up drawingasdevice.com, an online resource focused on the practice of drawing across design disciplines. This resource aims to harness the potential of drawing to enable learning across a broad range of subject areas and topics.
