Matt Willis-Jones (b. 1973, London) is a British artist based in Mexico City.
He studied art and film at Middlesex University (London) and Columbia College (Chicago) before spending 15 years working in post-production on major movies and TV series (which basically means sitting in dark rooms and farting through expensive chairs).
After several years of making his own award winning films - which played at festivals around the world - he moved to Mexico and returned to his roots as an artist, making portraits of transsexuals in Mexico City, which turned out to be far less stressful than working in the film industry and he encountered almost as many cocks.
His latest work is a collaboration with the luchadoras of Mexico City, combating violence against women in Mexico - not #metoo, but you too: #tútambién.
He writes films scripts for other directors, and occasionally appears on screen in other people's productions. He also writes short stories for international magazines, and his anthology of bedtime stories for grown-ups, 'Things to read before you run out of air' is presently being adapted into a podcast.
His hobbies include exclaiming: ‘Oh my God that looks terrible!’ while passing diners at expensive outdoor restaurants.
