Adam Beaumont is an Artist who works in both traditional and digital media. Shifting
between the visually complex and the conceptual, he draws equal inspiration from both
philosophy and psychedelia in order to critique the ways in which we perceive our
reality and the cultural and ideological structures found within.
His varied practice is informed by his personal hallicinatory experiences as well as
concepts within epistemology, psychology, science and spirituality.
He utilises visual elements and techniques from religious art, fractal- geometry,
computing and post-internet art and often uses language and semiotics as a
tool to frame his work within a paradoxical and labyrinthine philosophical landscape,
which serves to emulate a world of absolute relativism and purely subjective
phenomenology. Adam's creative practice fluctuates between the absurd and the profound;
the magical and the rational, drawing influence from the fantastic idealism of the
esoteric world of outsider art
He currently resides in the UK.
