Mike Abrahams

An exercise in going beyond the given and against the grain, Mike Abrahams’ practice explores the creative process itself as an opportunity to deconstruct the world around us and the way that we behave within it. Through assemblage, artist books, drawing, performance and methods of collective making, interventions are made into that which is often banal to the point of invisibility, exposing and unravelling the wiring that lets us see only that which we wish to see, and encouraging a more conscious relationship to our surroundings.

A graphic designer by training and profession, Mike Abrahams has since 2016 extended his practice to intense art-making that continues to disrupt structures of working, seeing, being and doing.

His work has been shown in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and a number of his artist books are in the collections of Tate and the V&A.
