Matuse is an up-and-coming international actor, musician and surrealist artist. Impactful from the beginning, he won Best Male Actor for his inaugural acting role in the award-winning short film “Between The Flags” for one of the world's largest short film festivals Tropfest, in 2007.
During 2009, Matuse featured in the cinematic release of the feature film “Cedar Boys”, playing the character of Hamdi. He also contributed to the soundtrack with three original songs making the final credits. This led to securing a highly coveted supporting role in the hugely successful Australian primetime television series "Underbelly: The Golden Mile" in 2010, playing the role of Shaka, a dangerous but charismatic gun for hire and drug dealer.
Matuse successfully ventured into theatre and was signed by renowned STC (Sydney Theatre Company) for the leading role in the STC produced play 'The Other Way” in 2013 following the success of the first run of the original show in 2012.
During 2014 Matuse released his debut album 'Third Eye King', and toured alongside his DJ. In 2015 saw him furthering his theatrical portfolio both in New York (“Cherish Every Moment”) & Sydney (“RED”). This led him to tour as part of the major live production “Clusters Of Light”, playing sold-out shows to royalty in Dubai and presidents in Egypt, as well as being screened on mainstream channels across the Middle East.
Matuse spent 2016 setting up an independent production house, alongside upcoming director Al Mayahi, with two short films “Wallpaper” and “4:19” for planned release mid and late 2017.
Matuse has also expanded his craft into surrealist paintings and drawings and is set to debut his exhibit both in Sydney & New York late 2017. Through the talents in multiple areas of artistry, he continues to transcend stereotypes and blur the lines of expectations of a modern day artist.
