Matt Franks’ monumental sculptures perversely celebrate consumer anxiety, media mis-consumption and beta-male neuroses.

Taking cues from video games, sci-fi films, comic books and other channels of masculine frustration, Franks’ ridiculously exaggerated totems are made from Styrofoam, spray cement before flocking and applying cheap, nasty faux finishing.

Franks’ work is regularly exhibited in the UK and internationally, featuring at major museums and galleries including the Xi’an Art Museum, Suzhou Art Museum (both China), Tate Britain, Bloomberg Space (both London), the Aldrich Museum (Connecticut, USA), Hong Kong Heritage Museum, National Gallery of Albania, Benaki Museum (Athens), Te Tuhi Gallery (Auckland), Sichuan Provincial Museum (Chengdu), Minsheng Art Museum (Shanghai), State Museum of Contemporary Art (Thessaloniki, Greece), Bergen Centre for Contemporary Art (Norway), Vilnius Centre of Contemporary Art (Lithuania), Museum of Contemporary Art (Tallin, Estonia), Brno House of Arts (Czech Republic), Museum of Contemporary Art (Belgrade), New Museum of Modern Art (Salamanca, Spain), Centre of Contemporary Art (Milan), and Krakow Bunkier Sztuki (Poland).
