Ferg Cooper


Coming for the Summershow 2021

Ferg Cooper is a young emerging, visual artist working primarily in paint and collage.
His work deals with themes of commercialism in relation to the self.

In particular, how we cope with a constant bombardment of visual information, and ways we use social media to communicate.
Many of his works use imagery inspired┬áby strangers’ Instagram profiles.

Ferg graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2017 with an MA in Fine Art.
He participated in a year long residency at the Florence Trust in 2018 and in 2019 was part of Oli Epp’s Plop residency.
This year he joined the inaugural panel of Artcry, a new fund giving fast answers on funding for political work, and was a mentor for NPA Labs.

Ferg has exhibited with several galleries across London and the UK, including Tate Exchange, Griffin Gallery, Menier Gallery, San Mei, Mall Galleries, and Islington Arts Factory. He was longlisted for the Elephant x Griffin prize, selected for ‘Exceptional 2019’ at Collyer Bristow, and featured in Wot Is Art magazine.

At the end of 2020 he was commissioned by Artcry to create a piece for their launch, which was flyposed across sites in London.
He has worked with several collectives including Bad Art Presents and Raw Art Forum, and made work for The Unicorn Theatre.

We are very eager to show his work this summer in Antwerp.

Ferg Cooper lives and works in London.
