Pablo Malik

b.1982

Pablo Malik grew up in Jamaica, where his father was renowned for his tailoring and pattern cutting skills. Watching his father at his craft as he grew up on the island was followed by the trauma of migration with his parents to an unwelcoming and hostile Britain eager for skilled immigrants as part of the “Windrush Era” of the 1940s to 60s. These formative experiences, as well as Malik’s later active involvement with music production that embraced sampling, mash-ups and experimentationlaid the foundations for the present body of work. The artist draws from contemporary popular culture, the Dada movement and his own wry socialobservations in making his art. Deeply individualistic, energised, and also exquisitely worked and structured, Pablo Malik’s collages seem to stand as banners or placards hoisted aloft: demanding to be taken notice of.
