Cos Ahmet

Visual Artist

Southport, Lancashire


woven tapestry, sculpture object making, works on paper


The core of Cos Ahmet’s work is centred around the body. Recurring themes of self, identity, sexuality and memory, are emotive features in much of his work. Shaped by his use of metaphors, the body becomes symbolised through various interlinks – points of juncture, where body & material respond with each other, as he makes loose connections with the various attributes of his practice to represent parts of the human form.
