Arthur Trombetta (born 1992) is a French Artist based in Kent, UK. He completed his BA in photography and Video Art at the University of Bedfordshire in 2016 and recently
graduated from his MA Contemporary Photography: Practices and Philosophies at Central Saint Martins, London.
My practice is centered around the ambiguous nature of the image which flickers with the sophistication of new technology. I am amazed by how it is now possible to create an image
from nothing and yet make it realistic enough to trick the viewer of its real nature - how can we tell if an image is authentic ? Throughout my practice, mixing mediums such
as painting, photography and sometimes video art and drawings, helps me to experiment and create images in an attempt to create artwork similar to satellite photographs, maps or
planets. I often present my work as accurate scientific documents in order to challenge an audience in questioning if what they are being told or shown is fact or fiction.
