Nick Gentry is a British graduate of Central St Martins and has exhibited in the UK, USA and Europe. Insipired by the sociological impact of a new internet culture, his portraits use a combination of obsolete media formats, making a comment on waste culture, life cycles and identity.
Using old disks as a canvas, these artifacts are combined to create photo-fits and identities that may draw connections to the personal information that is then forever locked down underneath the paint. He explores the ways in which humankind is integrating with technology, a movement that is becoming more and more of a cultural and social transition of our time.
