Malik Jama

Malik's practice focuses on digitally manipulating photography and film.

Malik Jama is an artist working mainly digitally, manipulating photography and film. His work illuminates spaces and ignites imaginations through his colourful projection mapping. His passion for photography focuses mainly on architecture and industry as well of bodies of water. He transforms original images into a dystopian and hallucinatory world of colour, using motifs from disaster movies, heavy with sci-fi feeling and hypnotic rhythm.

In 2022 Malik was commissioned by LAC Collective to create a bespoke projection mapping piece for Soup Kitchen, transforming the basement walls with light and photographic collage, mapped perfectly to the industrial fittings of the space.

In 2023 Malik was commissioned to create artwork for two after-dark winter spectacles, firstly Glow at RHS Garden Bridgewater, and secondly Lightwaves, which took place at Salford Quays and MediaCity.

Malik’s work is gaining much attention and in 2023 took him to Germany where he performed his projection mapping as part of the Chemnitz/ Manchester twin town anniversary celebrations.
