Inspired by the cultural cut up techniques pioneered by luminaries such as William Burroughs and Canadian turntable scientist Kid Koala, Northern California resident Matt Cunningham aka Moon Patrol has been creating some of the most iconic digital collage creations of the modern age.
Inspired by "80's cartoons, Atari 2600, horror movies, folklore, western and detective pulps, astronauts, gorillas, lethal rainbows, sentient prisms, skeletons leading lives independent of their owners, and undercover robots lurking just beneath the skin", Matt may be best known for his "disembled heads" series of works, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. His B-Art iconography is rich in humour and wit, turning his interests into something uniquely his own.
"My workspace is as clean as my process is messy. A focused, efficient work space balances out my scattershot process of mixing and matching in making art', Matt tells me. Having a small child can force you to be economical in the space you occupy and Matt's compact desk is a testament to this fact.
