Abraham Emajaro


Door of the Gilded Youth (2003)

A Shrine for the Nocturnal Poet (2009)

Abraham Emajaro, born in Bradford Yorkshire, is a self taught Multimedia Artist whose array of work includes the exploration of the subconscious and the hidden recesses of the mind, such as the hidden symbolism within dreams. His work draws inspiration from the works of C.G.Jung's, ‘On the Nature of Dreams’ and Freud’s. ‘The Interpretation of Dreams’.

His idea of employing materials he has found on travels, is an eclectic mix of domestic and commercial junk of everyday life, and has become and all consuming passion. An array of Box Construction, Assemblage, Sculpture, Painting, Photography and Video has been created.

In his box construction entitled ‘A shrine for the Nocturnal Poet’, for example, he employed materials culled from junk shops, flea markets, car boot sales, rubbish skip and the streets and alleyways of Manchester.

Emajaro sometimes employs humour alongside subjects such as memory, fetishism, ritual, iconography and fantasy to explore the surreal oddities of everyday life.

In his photography and video works, found objects are occasionally employed as props which play a metaphorical role in the composition.
