Myatt-McCallum is a partnership between Charles Myatt and Jack McCallum.  We met in 2012 whilst studying sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art where we shared a keen interest in material and technical processes. This is where our initial experiments in concrete began.  After graduating we have collaboratively and individually nurtured a diverse set of creative and technical experience.
Jack’s work experience is varied and provides a solid technical skill set required for the production of quality concrete products.  He has held technical roles at Powderhall Bronze Foundry, Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and worked as a concrete finisher on the Queensferry Crossing road bridge.  Alongside these work commitments, Jack has pursued his artistic career with a particular focus in stone carving.  In 2018 he attended a full time stone carving course in South Tyrol, at Berufsfachschule für Steinbearbeitung "Johannes Steinhäuser".  He received a classical tuition in the accurate carving of stone sculptures, alongside architectural pieces and lettering.

Charles has worked on various building sites in all manner of roles; had a small decorating business and worked on renovation projects. He has completed various fabrication projects for bars and clubs in Glasgow for clients such as the Berkley Suite and Kelvingrove Café. Alongside this he has assisted several artists including Toby Paterson & France-Lise McGurn. In 2018 Charles achieved a Masters Degree in painting at The Glasgow School of Art.  During this course he focused primarily on refining his technical abilities, utilising the workshops and staff.  The course helped focus Charles’ interest in the technical capabilities of different materials, particularly concrete.

Our understanding of concrete was further distilled through our mutual interest in skateboarding. We both contributed to the  building of  Leith DIY skatepark in Edinburgh and continue to work on The Arches DIY in Glasgow. Both are  community led, home grown concrete skateparks. 

We are endlessly fascinated in concrete  due to its versatility and in the innumerable ways of exploring a material with so many variables.
