Mat Pringle was born in South London where he spent an idyllic childhood climbing trees and drawing dinosaurs. He studied graphic design at the London College of Communication before eventually stumbling his way into the murky world of illustration. He now spends his time doing fantastical figurative illustrations working predominantly with dipping pen and ink. He is also a keen printmaker with a particular fondness for screen and linocut printing. He still draws dinosaurs only not quite as well.
His work has featured in exhibitions including Film 4 Summer Screenings, Pick Me Up, ARTCRANK, Required Reading (Gallery 1988, L.A), Pictoplasma Paris, The London Illustration Fair, Blisters On My Fingers, Secret 7 and Not For Rental.
Clients include Film 4, Little White Lies, Frightfest Originals, ASOS, Lynx, Protein, InPress, Branch, Threadless, Miles To Go, Jaguar Shoes and Get A Grip.
He is also a member of Puck Collective and teaches Illustration and Printmaking at BRIT Kids.
