Matthew J Pitts is a painter based in St Leonards-on-sea, on the south coast of England. His work is held in private collections in the UK, Sweden, Spain, Switzerland and the US.

“Many things influence my paintings and there is no hierarchy: bad jokes, Tintoretto, a dripping tap – it’s all fair game and welcomed in equally. The paintings exist as objects in their own right and there is no hidden message or agenda. They are a collection of humble materials that provide a record of endeavour at a particular moment in time.”
