Queer pop Art by Ferg Cooper
“I don’t know & I’m scared.”
About Ferg Cooper
Ferg Cooper is a visual artist working primarily in paint and collage. His work is
rooted in queer theory and deals with themes of commercialism in relation to the self. Specifically, ways we use social media to communicate and how we cope with a constant bombardment of visual information. Many of his works use imagery inspired by strangers’ posts, or models discovered online.
Ferg graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2017 with an MA in Fine Art. He has participated in residencies including the Florence Trust and ‘Plop’. He joined the inaugural panel of Artcry, a fund giving fast answers on funding for political work, and has mentored for NPA Labs. Ferg has exhibited with several galleries across London and the UK, including Tate Exchange, Menier Gallery, San Mei, Mall Galleries, and Islington Arts Factory. He has worked with several collectives including Bad Art Presents and Raw Art Forum,and made commissions for The Unicorn Theatre and Artcry, as well as designs for club nights and record sleeves. He is currently based at Koppel Project Bank.
