Biography


French artist, born in 1985, lives and works in Paris.

After completing a Master's degree in Mathematics & Computer Science, David Fathi starts an artistic research side-by-side with his career in engineering. This double practice can be perceived in his working method, ressearch-focused and centered around visualizing strange and little-known anecdotes.
David Fathi revisits for us a parallel history of science and politics. Our cognitive biases are questioned in a world overrun by lost atomic bombs, cursed scientists or even an immortal woman.

His work has been exhibited throughout the world, among them the Rencontres d'Arles, the Lodz Fotofestiwal and soon the Fotofest Biennial in Houston
