Mohamed Chamas (LB/AU)

Lives and works Melbourne, Australia

Mohamed Chamas is a Lebanese-Australian, digital artist based in Melbourne. His practice approaches a heterogenous union between spiritism and the contemporary-technological. Chamas explores this through his ethno-cultural identity, interfacing the latter with Islamic cosmological concepts . His work usually takes the form of ‘artgames’ or interactive media which include digital painting, 3d modelling and elements of technical art. Recently a graduate of Honours in Media and Communications at RMIT University, his areas of interest are embodiment, mysticisms of the past, semiology and assemblage as identity. Drawing in what is often held apart helps Chamas to approach an encultured discursivity that interrogates the divine, the racialized and the ‘other’.
