Résumé:

Matt King was born in Arlington, Texas, in 1984. During his formative years he was a Leadership in Training Counselor at Camp Amon Carter. Matt is a self-taught artist, and began painting in 2004.  He moved back and forth between Texas and Santa Fe before settling in Santa Fe in 2008, where he was one of 10 co-founders of the art collective Meow Wolf, and one of two artists who built Meow Wolf’s first installation, “Meowzors.”  Since then Matt has been a lead artist in almost every Meow Wolf project in New Mexico and elsewhere in the US. Outside of Meow Wolf, Matt has shown at several galleries and art fairs in New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Connecticut, and Miami.  Currently, Matt is Fabrication Director, a managing owner, and a lead artist for Meow Wolf’s new permanent installation in Santa Fe, the 20,000 square foot “House of Eternal Return."
