Biography from Cooper's Art Gallery & Brokerage:
• Native American Heritage – Cochiti
• Raised in Berkeley, CA
• Principal works are mixed media on canvas or panel.

• Attended the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA), Dartmouth College, the University of New Mexico and the School of American Research.

• In 2008, Mateo was the poster artist for the SWAIA Indian Market poster.

• His abstract compositions deal with family stories, cultural scenes and the contemporary Native experience.

• “These paintings reflect a pattern of evolution and change. The images are powerful, imposing, juxtaposed with swirling, gestural paint marks and drips. Timeless, archaic elements of Pueblo culture are juxtaposed with contemporary abstract expressionist palette knife and brush work. Overall, the paintings develop a rhythmic, hypnotic, trancelike feeling which is referential to the metaphysical space of the Pueblo and the dance itself.”

• He has won numerous awards at events such as Santa Fe Indian Market and the Heard Museum Indian Market. He won first place ribbons in lithography at the 1994 Santa Fe Indian Market, Best of Class 3 (painting), Best of Division (drawing), and First Place (printmaking), at the 1991 Indian Market.

• Denver Art Museum in Denver, Colorado
• Poeh Cultural Center in Pojoaque Pueblo, New Mexico
• Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico
• Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe, New Mexico
• Spencer Art Museum in Lawrence, Kansas
