Alex Nagshineh is a terminally distracted award-winning creative director and visual artist. Currently focussed on the creation of surreal and darkly comic miniature installations that he photographs.
Drawing on visual and thematic tropes from cult horror and sc-fi cinema, his stylised fever dreams take a grimly humourous approach to the absurdities of modern society and digital culture - as well as his personal challenges with adult ADHD.
Alex's creative work has been featured by BBC6, BBC Radio 1, The Guardian, CLASH , Resident Advisor, Ransom Note, DJ Mag, PR Week and Campaign.
Alex is a British-Iranian, award-winning filmmaker, music producer, publisher and visual artist.
As a sought after remixer and electronic musician, he has produced work for Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, Lana Del Rey, Little Dragon and Roisin Murphy. With releases for major labels ( Island Records, Polydor ) and regular airings on BBC6 Music and Radio 1. CLASH magazine once described him as having; '‘the Midas touch - everything he remixes turns to pure gold.”
In 2018 as a first experiment with film Alex created, produced, and co-directed a video series called Field Trips in partnership with Shure Mics for his own music and culture publication, Bonafide Magazine. The series focussed on the importance of ‘exploration and physical experiences in a digital world’ via a simple premise: the discovery of an unusual location for the purpose of collecting sound recordings which are turned into the films musical score.
Shot at Maunsell Sea Forts, Field Trips was selected for the Best Of The Best award at Campaign + PR Week's Brand Film Festival. Beating work from a shortlist of global media brands; VICE, The Economist, NOW TV and Channel 4.
After a chance meeting with the fashion photographer, Will Sanders on holiday Alex developed an interest in creative imagemaking. As a self-taught artist and photographer, Alex has since developed a style of work using dolls-house furniture and natural materials to create absurdist installations that he photographs.
