matt velarde started his career in marketing, including advertising and pr, but never lost sight of his true calling: photography he went back to school and obtained an honours degree in documentary and fine art photography from Liverpool john moores university; this gave him the confidence and the spur to follow his true vocation. even before graduation matt’s work was already gaining interest in the manchester art community and exhibiting his work in contemporary art galleries in the north west of England primarily focusing on landscape images these days, matt is happy to blur the line between the abstract, graphic and the figurative in what he sees in the places and spaces in the outdoor world around him. whilst travelling in the uk and abroad matt primarily lives and works in the north west of england and devon, the latter of which he draws great inspiration from; the coastal waters and their skies, the beaches and bays and the landscapes that spill down into them.
