Matt Watkins of Mothwasp


Matt Watkins works in photography, light projection, motion graphics and animation. With Lucy McLauchlan he formed the Beat13 collective in his hometown of Birmingham to encourage the collaboration of artists and musicians and also worked extensively with Jamie Hewlett on his platinum-selling animated-band Gorillaz for 10 years.


In recent years he has been directing live performance visuals for stage projects such as Joy Division Reworked (with The Heritage Orchestra & Scanner) but with Mothwasp adopts a lo-tech philosophy utilising old projectors, modified instruments, homemade effects pedals and hand crafted visuals.
