Matthew Duncan

Matt Duncan is a graphic designer and printmaker and has been producing linoprints since 2010. He loves the graphic qualities of this medium; strong contrast, crisp lines and flat colours, and enjoys the physical aspects to producing linoprints. 

Matt also has an interest in typography and Scandinavian design. He incorporates these two themes in typographic posters that can be customised with your favourite song lyrics, quote or names of your family members! 



I'm  an illustrator and ceramic designer working with porcelain clay, creating one-off wearable objects and small vessels. I further use these works to create my limited edition prints and gift cards. I studied printmaking and photography at RMIT (Melbourne) and did a very short stint in the gold and silversmith department at RMIT a few years later. I'm a self taught ceramicist. I like to explore themes of uncertainty, and the small unseen aspects in everyday life. I'm very interested in silence and quiet pauses in time.

I like to paint small moments in time. It's an extension of my photography work but with my painting I'm illustrating what I feel and imagine and not what can be seen though a camera lens.

I have started working on small sculptural forms which are hand formed in porcelain which compliment my more functional wearable works and vessels.

My stall at Rose st has been invaluable in helping me build a loyal customer base. It offers the opportunity to be able to introduce new work and get instant feedback, see what works and what goes unnoticed. It's like having a open studio every Saturday. It's a great place to catch up with other artists and designers which is important if you are working alone all week in your studio as I am.
