Adham Faramawy (b. 1981)

Adham Faramawy (b.1981 Dubai, U.A.E.) previously studied at The Slade School of Fine Art.

Faramawy works across a variety of media including moving image, painting and print. Faramawy’s works attempt to describe an urban lived experience where technology and its relationship to the body take a central role. The experience of cities, architecture, advertising, high-density populations – and how these affect the ways in which we behave and construct identity – are described through the distortion of commercial and art historical forms. This highlights the conditions of the work’s production and exhibition, searching for ways to build meaning through collage and edit, by implication, through accumulation or context.


Born: 1981 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
