Matthew Teo – Featured Artist for March 2011

Matthew Teo (b. 1987) is a multifaceted visual artist. He graduated from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 2007 with a Diploma in Visual Communications (Photography) with a Distinction in Digital Photography.

Matthew’s artworks largely revolves around issues that extend from the self. The most resonant is entitled “A Little Bit of Me in Everything Else”, where he encapsulates moments of his relationship with his friends and his personal reflections on life.

In another series “Two Years of Eternity“, Matthew explores his experiences during his National Service days, attributing it to a mandatory period of time for many Singaporeans and then rearranging it as a collective remembrance for his audience.


Matthew won his first award in 2007 given out by Hasselblad. He is currently a volunteer mentor with Migrant Voices, a non-profit support organisation that helps foreign domestic workers or labourers, as a photography teacher.

Matthew enjoys exploring a wide range of subject matter, from documenting people and important phases of his life to masterminding artistic collaborations with his peers.

Mathew’s recent projects includes his exhibits at Singapore City Hall’s Month of Photography project in 2007, being one of the youngest photographers selected. His works are also included in a 2008 publication entitled “Preoccupations: Things Artists do Anyway”.
