James Singam’s printed and embroidered textiles explore the way humanity has constructed traditional ideologies and developed a complex system of symbolism within. These symbols, icons & patterns, represent or distinguish belief, power & purpose. Singam navigates this tradition by employing a collaboration of visual language & the media of screen print. His printed paintings are an amalgamation of imagery, fabricated as Pop Art versus antiquity, a reconstruction of old traditions that envisage new meaning.
Singam lives and works in London.
