Matthew Flores


School of Design

Matthew Flores is an interdisciplinary artist and designer currently based in Knoxville, where he is the 2023-25 Graphic Design Fellow in the School of Design. His studio practice is rooted in strategies of misdirection and appropriation, and orbits around an interest in how the art viewing experience can be analogized with the format of jokes, performance, and the theatrical.

He was awarded the 2023 Idea Capital Atlanta Creative Grant, a Creative Residency Fellowship at Hambidge Center for Creative Arts, selected as one of Atlanta Celebrates Photography’s 2019 Ones to Watch, and attended a 2023 Residency at The Luminary in St. Louis, Missouri. Flores received his MFA in Photography from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia in 2019 and his BA in Art History from the School of Visual Studies at the University of Missouri in 2015.
