Matthew Burrows came to the Chelsea Centre to give one-to-one tutorials to our Fine Art students on the HND, HNC and BA Top-up years. Matthew is the founder of the Artist Support Pledge, which since last year has spread across the globe providing a market where by artists can sell affordable art but also bring generosity while pledging to support other artists. Burrows says, a way of creating a rapid economy based on a ‘culture of generosity’, while also proving that the art world’s gatekeepers and power structures can be circumvented. For his efforts, Burrows has been awarded an MBE by the British government. Matthew is a painter and represented by Vigo Gallery.
