My Bio

Bam-Bam is a contemporary painter and multi-disciplinary visual artist of mixed French, Moroccan, and Scottish heritage, raised in England. Bam-Bam is a visual storyteller whose work draws on image, shape, colour and narrative to create visionary expressions in paint. She loves how painting can transform the stuff of everyday life into vibrant and imaginative visual languages. At the heart of Bam-Bam’s aesthetic is a desire to revitalise the spaces and surfaces of the everyday world with vivid patterns and designs. Whether she’s working on a mural, street art, a commission or collaboration, Bam-Bam embraces each project with an open mind and an appreciation of flow. For Bam-Bam, art-making is an intimate choreography with the movements and rhythms of the world and its inhabitants. Bam-Bam’s process is meditative and carefully conceived at the same time as it is highly adaptable and intuitive. She fuses traditional and contemporary styles, frequently employing bold geometric patterns. She works across a variety of materials and surfaces, using spray paints, stencils, prints, and pigments, leaving marks and brush-strokes on bodies, abandoned buildings, paper, textiles, and other canvases. For Bam-Bam, painting is public performance. There is a robust theatricality to Bam-Bam’s painting practice, which involves characters and costumes in the development of each work. Often, these fantastic and fictional personas liberate Bam-Bam from the usual constraints of art-making and allow her imagination to run wild. As a result, many of Bam-Bam’s paintings express vivid psychedelic imagery that evokes a sense of fantasy, wonder, and euphoria. Bam-Bam has developed many of her designs into wearable art and décor. Now, not only can you look at the paintings… you can become part of them.
