Matthew Stone: PH: Terence Koh: ID Magazine Dec 07
Matthew Stone is 6' 3" which has made this flamboyant showman/shaman an even more imposing presence on the New London art/music/fashion circuit. He takes photographs, served (in every sense) as the resident DJ at Boombox, is obsessed with Michael Jackson and has become a highly hyped artist of the minute . His partners in crime include artist Terence Koh and designer Gareth Pugh and his parties, outfits, art happenings and publicity stunts has made him a one man cult. Is he worth collecting? Mr. Stone was included in a fantastic group show at 10 Rooms and a Sculpture Garden last year and given his network of contacts (ID mag is pushing him hard) it is only a matter of time before the make-or-break collectors engage his work. Besides a little riffing on venerable Renaissance paintings always turns somebody on.
