About the artist:
Born London 1983, Haroun Hayward lives and works in London. He graduated from Nagoya University of Arts; BA (Hons) Fine Art Painting, Brighton University; and MA Fine Art Practice, Goldsmiths University.
Hayward draws inspiration from the iconography of 90’s acid house, in juxtaposition with the classical world, to explore the relationship between ancient and contemporary forms of ritualistic ecstasy. Recent work has begun to include his research into rhythm and pattern in textiles, and the relation to rhythm and pattern in Electronic music.
