Matt Starr is a New York City based artist, writer and filmmaker.
As a filmmaker, he's remade the film Annie Hall starring senior citizens, which was featured in The New York Times, CBS Sunday Morning, Vice, The Village Voice, and many more.
He also directed the “Dope Walk” music video for A$AP Ferg.
In 2015, Matt created the viral trend Babycore which stressed a carefree sense of style that reflected the lifestyles of children.
In 2016, Matt created Amazon Boy where he dressed up as an Amazon Delivery person and strapped 50 boxes to his back delivering them all over lower Manhattan as a performance. He did this over the course of 2 summers. It went viral online and people didn’t know whether or not this was a new delivery system Amazon was testing or “something else.” It was written about in Art in America.
Matt is the Director of Lower East Side gallery Trotter & Sholer and has curated shows with Brontez Purnell, Mickey Boardman and Adam Himebauch. The shows have been covered by The New York Times, Art Net, Office Magazine, Interview Magazine and Document Journal.
He's currently developing two TV shows based off one of his films.
