Niru Ratnam

Niru Ratnam opened in 2020. The program builds on Ratnam’s academic and writing interests from the late 1990s onwards. The gallery represents ten artists with a mixture of established, mid-career and emerging artists whose work often interrogates the canon around ethnicity, gender, sexuality and class. They work across painting, film, installation, photography and sculpture.

The gallery currently represents Kutlug Ataman, Sutapa Biswas, Lydia Blakeley, Emma Cousin, Kimathi Donkor, Adham Faramawy, Matthew Krishanu, Paul Purgas, Alicia Reyes McNamara and Jala Wahid.

New gallery opening soon:
71-73 Great Portland Street

Adham Faramawy is an artist of Egyptian descent based in London. Their work spans media including moving image, sculptural installation, photography, print and painting, engaging with concerns of materiality, touch, the body and toxicity to question ideas of the natural in relation to marginalised communities.
