Biography

Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (BA Fine Art, 2004).

Working from found and researched camera imagery the work seeks to evoke the passage of time and memories from personal, cultural and collective perspectives. The sourced imagery is sensitively appropriated in to new forms using varied media. My interest in using these found photographic and moving images stems from the romantic idea that they act as artefacts of our memories. The aim of creating these objects gives these displaced images a new life encapsulating their histories and memories from the initial capturing through the lens to their re-appropriation in to the new form.

Born in Sharjah, U.A.E (1982), to a British father and a Lebanese mother. In 1985 the family relocated to London, U.K where Jad currently lives and works. Having always had a keen interest for the visual he attended Chelsea college of art to do his foundation studies, then continued to study a BA in fine art painting at Central Saint Martins followed by a one year professional photography practice at the London College of Printing. Since finishing his studies, Jad has been commissioned as a professional photographer and has exhibited his visual art in group and solo shows in the United Kingdom.
