Adham Faramawy is a Dubai born, London based artist of Egyptian origin whose practice spans moving image, sculptural installation and print.

About

He uses technology to examine how identity is constructed in the twenty-first century. The body is central to his practice and is approached as a primary, sensual site in which gender and sexuality are fluid.

In the making of his work 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 Cronenberg's cult classic Videodrome (1983) and Octavia Butler's Xenogenesis science fiction trilogy.
