Matt Copson loves art, and his passion has taken him places he never dreamed about. Those places also include his sanctuary and his muse, Caroline Polachek.
Keep reading this “Matt Copson Bio” to learn more about him.
Meet Matt Copson, Caroline Polachek Boyfriend
Matt Copson and Caroline Polachek started seeing each other in 2017. Two years later, the duo then also connected professionally, with Matt providing visuals for Caroline’s debut album and effectively blending his own eclectic art style with his boo’s unique music to create some truly stunning videos, photos, and more.
However, though the lovebirds were already years into their relationship, they only revealed the secret in 2021 during an interview with The New Yorker. Still, at the time of penning this article, that interview was the only time that Caroline’s relationship with Matt was officially mentioned — both in reporting and on social media.
Prior to Matt, Caroline was married to Ian Drennan from 2015 to 2017. After the divorce, she said to The New Yorker, “My mother very much disapproved, and my friend group was sort of split by it.” But on a positive note, the emotional time drove her deeper into her music. “I was feverishly compelled by the music, and in love with it,” she said. Guess, the loss of her marriage and the roots of her new love with Matt pushed her to create some of the most emotional music of her solo career to date.
Now, the alternative pop music artist has had some pretty big accomplishments under her belt including touring with Dua Lipa, ghostwriting for Elon Musk, and collaborating with Charli XCX. The last we checked, her new release “Desire, I Want to Turn Into You” was trending in the charts.
For those who don’t know, Caroline first stepped into the spotlight as the lead vocalist for the Brooklyn-born electronic band Chairlift. In 2013, she then began her solo career under the moniker Ramona Lisa and released her debut album Arcadia the following year.

Matt Copson Family
Matt Copson said that he comes from a family of Sandwich makers. “My dad always says Eggs and Cress, which I think is really embarrassing for somebody who owns a sandwich shop to say,” he said.
As for his mother, she’s more of an artist who works for Da Thirst Magazine.
Also, Matt has an aunt named Tina Eyre (Coleman Wealthall) and a cousin named Nicole Georgia Eyre.
More of his family members include — Derek Copson (a Radley College and Shepherd & Woodward former employee) and Harry Copson.
Sadly, Caroline’s father passed away in April 2020 due to coronavirus. Unlike Matt, Caroline said that her father wasn’t a great parent. He struggled with depression and bipolar disorder his whole life, which taught Caroline and her sister “disappointment and self-sufficiency” at too young an age. However, her dad was a brilliant thinker and academic, a renowned China scholar, a lightning wit, and a talented musician who hated pop music and never once came to see her perform.
How Much Is Matt Copson Net Worth?
Matt Copson garnered a net worth of above $500 thousand by 2023.
A British Post-war and Contemporary artist, Matt has featured numerous key galleries and museums such as Serpentine South Gallery in his art. So far, he’s done over seven Solo Exhibitions and eight Group Exhibitions. His most popular artworks were Age Of Coming, Down Boy, Open Space II, Spb Sotry, Hollow Earth, Crowd Control, The Secret Life Of Lobsters, Breathless, and Dead Among The Dead.
Also, he has been featured in articles for ArtDaily, Wallpaper, and Art Viewer.
The last we checked, Matt and composer Oliver Leit had just made their debut opera at London’s Royal Opera House. His then-featured work, Last Days was an adaptation of Gus Van Sant’s 2005 film of the same name which speculated on the titular ‘last days’ of musician Kurt Cobain.
“The entire thing is an epilogue. Everyone’s last days are f**king crazy. Because the most silly things take on the most significance. Particularly when someone’s killing themselves because you know what you’re doing,” Matt explained. Also, he remarked that after Last Days, there are only landscapes and no humans. “In the opera, you’ll see I’ve designed a 17-meter backdrop, which is a huge landscape that’s constantly shifting and moving.”
But though Matt has now stepped into opera, he’s not fond of the category. Infact, he only likes the works of Harrison Birtwistle among all opera artists.
Besides art, Matt has also dabbled in the music industry. He released his single “Last Days” in 2022.
