Matthew Hoffman is a Chicago based public artist. His work ranges from large-scale and interactive sculptures, to small stickers and approachable art for the home. As custodian of You Are Beautiful, a project to better the world through positive messages, over 8 million stickers have been shared by the community, with over 100 public works permanently installed globally since 2002.
Matthew has created public installations for the Chicago Park District, the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, as well as companies like Apple, Meta, & Oprah. Collaborative work has been centric to his career, and has included partnerships with The United Way, Nami, & The Chicago Community Trust, with a mural created with the youth of the Juvenile Temporary Detention Center.
Matthew operates his practice out of the YAB HQ facility in Chicago, which houses his studio and gallery space, open to the public. His process encourages a team dialogue connecting many voices from different backgrounds to bring the best possible outcome into the world.
Matthew’s work is created to be as open and accessible as possible. The messages he chooses are an effort to remind us individually of our self worth, and encourage us to be there for each other.
