Matthew Tito Cuenca

Fine Artist and Designe

Born in 1968 in Manila, Philippines, Matthew Tito CUENCA grew up in a multi-racial, multi-faith home. His home life greatly encouraged his love of painting and influenced his unique technique of blending the familiar and foreign into thoughtful, unconventional combinations of art and story. In 1991, he received his B.F.A. with honors from Parsons School of Art and Design. During this time he continued to develop his personal study on the juxtaposition of function and design and became a successful fashion designer.

For the next 15 years he worked as a Designer, Illustrator and Art Director for several notable companies such as Harper Collins Trophy, Moody Publishing, Bill Blass Sportswear, J. Crew and Oleg Cassine Couture. He has also worked as an associate professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology. In 2002, he decided to leave the world of Fashion, move to Paris and rekindle his love of sculpture and painting. Currently, he lives and works in Cambodia where he derives limitless inspiration from the history and beauty of the Khmer landscape, people, and customs.
