5 Mins With… Matt Black
Just as I am in the process of working together on a project with Matt Black, I thought it would be good to get his perception on New York and what he is into in general. The multi talented artist has worked with a variety of creative people from Dior to Medicom and with a project set to come out with Cast Of Vices, it doesn’t get much better.
