Idris Khan

Idris Khan's work is an enigmatic play of appropriation and re-creation. Combining analog and digital photographic techniques, his works possess characteristics more akin to drawing or painting, animated by the accumulative intervention of the artist's hand. Known for his works based on historical figures such as the Bechers, Caravaggio, Bach and Freud, Khan treats the works of such figures as literal building blocks to create a single composite image. Born 1978 in Birmingham, Idris Khan lives and works in London.
