COUSCOUS Kid – Mathew Thomas

couscous Kid - Mathew Thomas

Couscous Kid is the work of Mathew Thomas, illustrator and designer based in Bath, UK. Mathew’s illustrations lie somewhere between the cutting edge of the new breed in contemporary illustration and the tempting nipple of naive. Impossible to pigeon-hole, Couscous Kids’ dream-like and innocent style leads us dancing eerily among the childlike leaves we cling onto through life to a deeper and darker space. A timeless place where fantasy and fairy tale doodles combine with intrigue, mystery and sex. At first glance all is as it seems with hints of sixties abandon, but closer inspection reveals a 21st century humour and physical freedom hidden among the sublime and ridiculous forms and characters. Recently Mat has been developing his unique style of image making by working with original sketches drawn by his wife Debra whom he lives together with their 2 children. Mathew’s images find homes embodying and embracing beauty, fashion, nature, music and above all life. Investigate and explore!
