Mathew Tom is an artist born of a mixed racial background, he has always been interested in this idea of cultural melding leading to identity confusion.

Since 2011, he has been describing in the form of videos, photographs and drawings a fictional spiritual community called Society of Friends. It is a reflection of his ideas of utopian society turned dystopian through boredom, vanity and a desire to believe. On the outset, a perfect place where beauty and belief reign, but the onset of boredom, lack of structure and narcissism lead to dissatisfaction.
