Mat Gleason serves as a judge in GSN's reality competition series "Skin Wars: Fresh Paint."

Mat Gleason is an acclaimed editor, art critic and curator who is the founder of the renowned Coagula Art Journal. First published in April, 1992, the bimonthly print journal quickly gained notoriety as a no-holds critique of contemporary art and the art world. Championing Los Angeles and mocking New York when the notion of the Big Apple playing second fiddle to "LaLa Land" was considered delusional, the art world as it exists now was envisioned as obvious on the pages of Coagula a generation ago. Deborah Vankin of the Los Angeles Times writes that his "mix of often-scathing reviews and no-holds-barred art world gossip earned Gleason a reputation as a trouble-making, rude contrarian."

Gleason is also a contributor to The Huffington Post and recently opened Coagula Curatorial as a premiere exhibition space of contemporary art.

Gleason graduated from Cal State Los Angeles, where he concentrated in Art and Journalism.
