Born in 1980, Edinburgh, Scotland, I am an artist, designer and musician who works in a variety of media including visual art, performance, sound and music. I have a particular interest in combining new digital technologies with traditional techniques and materials. My work has been shown at a number of major art institutions including the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh and the CCA, Glasgow and in major art festivals such as the Glasgow International, Edinburgh International Festival and Edinburgh Art Festival. One of my artworks, Cybraphon, is held in the national collection at the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh and I have won numerous awards including a Scottish BAFTA.

Since graduating from Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen in 2002 I have divided my time between solo and collaborative projects. My solo work follows an analytical documentary style and much of it has taken the urban environment as inspiration, dealing with the city’s growth and decay, its temporary quirks and more enduring features. Between 2002 – 2013 I was a member of the artist collective / pop band FOUND. As part of FOUND, I released numerous records and co-created a collection of weird and wonderful interactive sound installations including Cybraphon and #UNRAVEL. I recently left the collective to concentrate on my own work and on being a dad (my son Patrick was born in January 2013).

Please feel free to contact me regarding commissions and new projects.

Many thanks,

Tommy Perman
