Golden Family are Matt Golden (b.1974 Salisbury, England) and Natsue Ikeda (b.1976, Hiroshima, Japan). They live and work between London and rural Northamptonshire.
Their artistic practice incorporates a wide variety of processes and methods, working across sculpture; painting; photography; magazine commissions; international collaborations; song-writing and performance; and curating exhibitions. Whilst stylistically diverse their artworks share an inherent wit and sensitivity to the human condition and the world we inhabit, often interwoven with a personal narrative.
