Who is Jon Rafman? Bio
Rafman is part of that band of post-internet artists that grew up surrounded by video games. Originally part of the DIY online collective Paint FX which created a digital aesthetic using tools like Photoshop and ArtRage, Rafman has graduated to his own solo exhibitions at the Musée d'Art Contemporain, Montreal, and London's Zabludowicz Collection.
Rafman's work explores the boundaries of human consciousness and technology, particularly when it comes to online communities. Video games, internet memes and virtual landscapes all occupy his imagination. Think of Jon Rafman art kicking the click of the early camera shutter into high gear, upgrading 20th century street photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson.
Jon Rafman art & exhibition 2015
For his exhibition at the Zabludowicz Collection we can expect works within an enormous sculptural installation, alongside a brand new video commissioned specially for the show. Visitors are thrown into a fantastic new virtual space, heavily influenced by Live Action Role Play, that erases the line between real and imaginary.
