Statement

Ed Fornieles (for-nee-el-es) (b. 1983, UK) is an English artist working in Los Angeles using a variety of different media including the Internet, sculpture, performance, film and social media.  Fornieles merges sophisticated social manipulation with a formal approach to the Internet and pop culture.  His works Animal House, Dorm Daze and The Dreamy Awards have drawn comparisons to Todd Phillips, early John Waters, and 360 advertising.
