Rhys Coren

b. 1983, United Kingdom

Rhys Coren was born in Plymouth, UK, in 1983. Coren graduated from the University of West England, Bristol, in 2006 and completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Fine Art, at the Royal Academy Schools, London, in 2016.

Coren works across animation, writing, performance and painted marquetry. He explores rhythm, colour and texture in work that is characterised by cartoon-like clouds, grids of colour, shadows and the interplay of lines. Inspired by music, Coren credits the structures found in electronic dance music, jazz and disco as central to his work. He was recently commissioned to create an animation as part of the Lumiere Festival 2018, London. Entitled Love Motion, the animation was projected across the Royal Academy of Arts building and was accompanied by a bespoke soundtrack.

Coren’s solo exhibitions include Seventeen, London (2017); Galerie pcp, Paris (2016) and Jerwood Project Space, London (2014). Group exhibitions include Drawing Room, London; Bluecoat, Liverpool; Screen City Biennial, MS Sandnes Boat, Stavanger, Norway (2017); Seventeen, London; Royal Academy of Arts, London (2016); Slate Projects, London (2015) Site Gallery, Sheffield (2014); Test Space, Spike Island, Bristol; Design Museum, London (2013); FACT, Liverpool (2009) and Bloomberg New Contemporaries (2007). Coren has completed residencies in the UK, USA, and Italy.
