Biography

 

Faris Alosaimi

b. 1991 

 

A multidisciplinary artist based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. His practice spans a multitude of different areas from painting to photography, woodworking to more recently space scenography and design.  His projects express the anxiety of a generation facing the environmental impact of development with the contemporary urban condition and man’s relationship to the natural world around him. While he studied Tourism and Archaeology at King Saud University, he is largely a self-taught artist and creative.

 

Along with having an abiding interest in architecture and urban spaces, Alosaimi is a keen observer of human interactions around objects in space. His gestural abstractions of the human figure, produced on a large scale with often blurred or semi-obscured facial features, seek to capture fleeting emotions that mark the human condition. More recently however, He found solace in planning and designing experiences for everyday people, his target audience. He, alongside his team, established and has been developing the scenography of spaces of the Saudi coffee shop brand, Camel Step, to create site-specific experiences of their shops which span across the whole kingdom and beyond. He relocates himself to the city where they are establishing a new space and draws from the environment of the city, the local material, the people and their culture to craft undetectable art installations.

 

His recent projects are Camle Step spaces in Abha, Jeddah, Mecca, Riyadh. He has participated in various exhibitions including Art Dubai, 2018; Young Saudi Artists Exhibition, Sixty Percent Group Show, Athr Gallery 2015; Art Riyadh, Naila Gallery, 2015; and Behance Riyadh 6th Edition, 2014.

He currently holds the position of Head of Design and Development Department at Camel Step.
