Adrian Shaw

As both a scientist and artist, Adrian uses montage and other mixed media methods to explore the boundaries between technology, the environment and society. He is particularly keen on utilising ‘found’ or discarded objects- the detritus of our post-colonial, global society in his art. Often, he uses assemblages and installation9including painitng, text, printing and light based methods- photography, video in a trans-media approach. He is also, as someone of anglo-indian background interested in investigating identity, memory and diaspora, which he calls ‘universal tourism’. Stylistically he works in a ‘faux naive’ manner. Adrian lives in Nottingham and is currently completing an M.A. in lens-based media.
