Adham Faramawy is a London-based artist working across moving image, sculptural installation and print. Faramawy often draws on the language of advertising, co-opting the special effects used to evoke desire for people, things and experiences. The artist combines these seductive devices of brilliance, slipperiness, morphing and repetition with his own interest in the transgressive aesthetics of 'body horror', found in manga and anime, as well as cult classics such as Cronenberg's Videodrome (1983).
Solo exhibitions include: Janus Collapse (the juice box edition), 2016, The Bluecoat, Liverpool; Hyperreal Flower Blossom, 2015, VITRINE, London; Feels Real, 2014, Marian Cramer Projects, Amsterdam; and Hydra, 2014, Cell Projects, London.
