Jamel Alatise

London, UK


'As a Socially Engaged Artist–Creative, I have an interest in Culture & Design. As a Creative, I have cultivated a toolbox - an assortment of techniques, processes, and strategies that allow me to respond to manifold problems by generating solutions. As an Artist, I have my own desires and intentions I wish to contribute and, as an artist I am interested in the myriad roles and forms being an artist allows: artist as performer, artist as researcher, artist as investigator, artist as community.'

'I work mainly with Photography and Poetry, as my main crafts. Besides that, my work is collaborative and engages and depends on people. There are always stories contained within the work. My work focuses on creating connections, ranging from connections within a creative process and seemingly unrelated topics, to bridging unique experience and sharing a platform for them to be showcased.'
