Dominic Myatt

Artist

Dominic Myatt is a London-based artist and tattooist scrawling contorted bodies, anguished faces, distended limbs and weeping sores with the warped freedom and startling immediacy only drawing can provide. Since his time at Goldsmiths College in London, Myatt’s work has taken various inspiration from the classically structured erotic novellas of the Marquis de Sade, as well as Surrealist Georges Bataille’s enigmatic musings on eroticism and its connections with death and sacrifice. 

His book (no kissing) was purchased by the Tate for their archive and explored men's anonymous erotic ads posted online. Myatt has collaborated with the London fashion label ART SCHOOL and has been commissioned by Channel 4 and Vivienne Westwood.
