Matthias was born 1988 in Andernach, Germany (the origin of Charles Bukowski), but grew up in a small village 150km away from Cologne. For three years he made wine as an apprentice, before he moved to Berlin, where he started to paint and decided to study art. After time in Kassel and Antwerp, he finished his Masters in Berlin in 2016, and a post graduate Master at the Glasgow School of Art in 2018.

Matthias designs subjective systems that convey a metaphysical feeling rather than a message.
