Matthew "Mat" Collishaw (born 1966, Nottingham, UK) is an artist based in London, and one of the Young British Artists.


Collishaw attended Goldsmiths, University of London (1986-9), alongside Damien Hirst and other YBA artists.

He has shown work internationally in many exhibitions including Freeze at Surrey Docks in London, in which Collishaw displayed large scale tiled photographs of a bullet wound in a head; this work is a good indicator of Collishaw’s artistic interests and practices.

His work uses photography and video. His best known work is Bullet Hole which is a closeup photo of what appears to be a bullet hole wound in the scalp of a person's head, mounted on 15 light boxes. Collishaw took the original image from a pathology textbook that actually showed a wound caused by an ice pick.

Commercial gallery shows include “Controlled” at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery in New York, “The Parable Show” at Galerie Grimm/Rosenfeld in Munich, and “The Passing” at Galeria Helga de Alvear in Madrid.

Collishaw's work was included in “Sensation” at the Royal Academy of Art.

He recently left Haunch of Venison gallery and now works with BlainSouthern in the UK. Collishaw is represented by Tanya Bonakdar Gallery in the United States, Raucci/Santamaria Gallery Naples in Italy, and Galerie Analix Forever in Switzerland.
