About the artist
Gazmend Ejupi is originally from Kosova and was born in 1973. He came to the UK in 1998. Studied Fine Arts at the Central Saint Martin College of Art and Design, graduating in 2005.
“Gazmend Ejupi chooses subjects that tease our knowledge of history and reinstates them within a new, dominating iconography – that of the fiction film posters, investing them with a new, much familiar and coveted status – the status of celebrities. His poster paintings though, acquire a new value and reading only on a retroactive basis. At first glance they look like some old fashion film posters, with faded glamour. It’s not until one is informed about the main characters that a play starts in our mind, throwing into question our concept of history and the way how we actualize past and present values.” ( EDI MUKA, 2008)
