Above states: “Last year I was traveling for 3-months around Europe and spent 2 weeks in Paris. One day when I was walking around Paris I found this spot but unfortunately I had just 1 day before my flight to Rome.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: INTERVIEW WITH URBAN LOWBROW ARTIST MATTHEW KNIGHT
Meet Matthew Knight, an up and coming urban/lowbrow artist currently based in Ireland, whose psychedelic monster characters seem to pop off the canvas and beg to be touched. Knight is unconventional when it comes to his canvases, as he likes to use recycled materials in his work, bringing together something old, making it new and all his own. We had the opportunity to interview him about where he gets his ideas for his pieces, his influences that shaped his artistic style and what’s on the horizon, like his new ‘toy’ commission and upcoming shows.
You currently live in Belfast, where did you grow up?
I was actually born over in Cambridge, England; my mother is from Northern Ireland and my dad England. They worked for a health organisation and went over to Pakistan when I was 4. I loved all the years I spent there, the people I met, the smells, the palaces, temples, villages, Mosques, Bedford trucks, rickshaws and the food. Real Chicken Tikka, not the shit you get in the UK, was amazing. I am addicted to good spicy food.
