Rolando Dimitrios Garay-Matziaris is a Greek-Chilean-Australian visual artist based in Melbourne, Australia. His work is informed by his cross-cultural identity, experiences, and reflections on the Australian identity.
His practice incorporates digital collage, drawing and commercial printing techniques in order to explore cultural identities, hybridity, and value systems; found within the context of multicultural Australia. His work utilises ironic and absurd graphic representations of image and text, to display unexpected combinations through humorous juxtapositions.
Garay-Matziaris graduated from the Master of Fine Arts at RMIT with distinction in 2016, as well as receiving the ADFAS Young Arts Award in the same year. He has participated in various group shows in Melbourne, as well as solo exhibitions at Tinning Street Presents and Trocadero Art Space.
