Juan Mateus is a London based Colombian artist who works with photography, mixed media and found objects, currently studying Fine Art at Central Saint Martins (UAL) he is also the editor of @queerquarterly zine.

*

“Juan Mateus grew up in Colombia, with frequent visits to the magnificent open spaces of its countryside. He was classically trained in music from the age of five and moved to England at 20. Naturally curious, a good humoured traveller – his street photographs reflect his contented solitude within the cityscape.”

Toby Leetham

“It takes an exceptional talent then, to break that mould and show us something different. Well that’s what Juan Mateus does with his extraordinary gallery of photographs entitled Home Sweet London.”

Elaine Sturgess, Birds On The Blog

“Juan intends for his work to encourage people into thinking about issues such as self-obsession, the emotional dynamics of relationships, politics and ‘the art world’ in a more light hearted and humorous fashion.”
