Faris Nakamura

Faris Nakamura (b.1988, Singapore) graduated with Bachelor in Fine Arts (First Class Honours) from LASALLE College of the Arts in partnership with Goldsmiths, College of London in 2014.

Through sculptures, installations and site-specific works, Faris investigates the way people navigate and orientate themselves as they encounter space. He desires to understand their attachments and detachments towards space, how these develop, and their impact. 

Faris was most recently awarded the Young Talent Programme Winners’ Solo, 2017/2018. He was the Grand Winner at the Shitsurai International Art Competition, Kobe Biennale, 2015 and the Winston Oh Travel Award recipient, 2013.

Faris has exhibited both locally and internationally. He has showcased at venues such as The Substation (Singapore), ION Art (Singapore), Scotts Square (Singapore), Gillman Barracks (Singapore), Kobe Biennale (Japan), Georgetown Festival (Penang, Malaysia) FASS Art Gallery (Turkey), and Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, (Venice).

It is also notable that Faris is a flautist and has performed at venues such as the Esplanade Concert Hall and the Victoria Concert Hall (Singapore).
