About Matteo

His paint brushes are an extension of his anatomy, the colours are the seeds of his soul, the blank canvas a world where expression, pain, confusion and meaning allow this artist to not think and just be… and deliver today what is known as his movement of “Inspirational Artistry”.

Born and raised in Sydney Australia this self-taught artist found refuge in all things creative from a very young age. Constantly feeling different from others, art in some form or another was always present in Matteo’s upbringing and delivered comfort to this quiet and curious being.

From the moment he picked up his first crayon and began to draw, a sense of calmness resonated from his soul each time he allowed imagination to take over, spending hours developing his craft harnessing the element of creativity within. Matteo continually sketched, painted, and expressed his feelings and thoughts through his communicative outlet of art. Unknown to Matteo his art and ingenuity was his spiritual guidance preparing him for his later purpose in life.

Diagnosed with what the medical industry labels as a “non curable non contagious” chronic disease at a young age Matteo utilized his inner warrior spirit developed through his years of education via the teachings of martial arts to strengthen his mind and not give in to what had temporarily taken over his body without his permission, whilst finding comfort expressing his pain through art, writing and music.

Starting with a blank 6ft X 4ft canvas Matteo creates live on stage portraits that tell stories of their own, creating lasting interest from each audience member during every second of his performance. Matteo utilizes the platform of art to engage with his audience on a personal level allowing the portraits to become an introduction to the artist who is Matteo Charles, resulting in an inspirational story of a life of pain, near death experience, to living his dream, captivating audiences from the ages of 5 to 105.

Matteo has collaborated and painted for global influences such as Anthony Robbins, John Travolta, Sir Richard Branson, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Halle Berry, Quincy Jones, Sir Michael Parkinson, Robert Kiyosaki, Anthony Mackie, The Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Porsche, Jay Abraham, Doug Ellin. He was the official live artist for the celebration of Bruce Lee’s 75th Birthday November 2015 in Hong Kong, he is an international shoe designer, Performed at the Playboy Mansion, F1 in Monaco, and recently released his biography titled ‘My Disease, My Teacher” Available now through Amazon.

His performances have been described as:

‘Inspirational – Moving – Relatable – Visual Stimulating Powerful – Influential – Significant – Exciting – Fun Thrilling – Jaw Dropping – OUT OF THIS WORLD’

‘Dear Matteo, Many thanks for the canvas painting. It’s a wonderful likeness and my family and I appreciate your thoughtfulness.’

‘Matteo joined us at the Bruce Lee Foundation 75th Anniversary Celebration for Bruce lee in Hong Kong. His performance was a highlight of the evening and the audience was delighted’

‘Matteo Charles is an extraordinary artist but a more extraordinary person.  I’m an Emmy winning producer of children’s content and for thirty+ years, I have run the largest independent animation studio in the U.S.   I regularly meet very talented artists.   I put Matteo amongst the very top.  More importantly,  he is a man of exceptional character who I have had the privilege to get to know personally.  I can’t possibly recommend him enough.’

‘I had the privilege of meeting Matteo Charles this year at the 10X Growth Conference in Las Vegas, where we were both featured presenters at the event.’

‘Matteo is not only a brilliant and gifted artist, he is immeasurably kind, generous, and a man of his word.’

‘I was honored beyond belief when I received a surprise portrait that Matteo painted of me. A tremendous gift from one of the great artists of our time.’
