Matt Cockayne

South Sheffield born Matt Cockayne has been splashing Hendo’s on his dinner, tea and supper for as long as he can remember.

Originally trained as a sign writer at Castle College he has worked his way up through the design and print industry over the past 15 years and finally set up his own design label and became a self employed artist in April 2013.

His art has expanded from an Original Henderson’s themed collection to football themed art and a very Sheffield feel in general, Matt is very much a lad of the city.

Lately he has designed and hand painted us a Henderson’s themed Elephant for the Children’s Hospital, for the Herd of Sheffield exhibition.

Aptly named Hendophant, Matt stated, “I would never have thought splashing my meat n tata pie with relish as an 8 year old that I would be involved many years later in such a exciting project”.
