Matija Čop was born in Croatia and is based in London. He graduated from Royal College of Art in 2017. Čop's practice is based on translating introspective dissection of relations between materials, structures and systems that are based on mastering and personalising digital technologies but also contrasting it with the variety of manual skills and traditional art techniques. His practice intertwines several interdisciplinary approaches including soft sculpture, painting and printmaking. Three sculptures by the artist were acquired by the Centre Pompidou, Museum of Modern Art in Paris in 2021 and remain on permanent display. Additional institutional exhibitions include the Textile Art Biennial, 2021, Kranj, Slovenia, and Innovative Costumes of the 21 Century, 2019, Moscow, and Future Fashions, 2013, Eindhoven.
