Mark Farid (b. 1992, Leicester) is a conceptual artist who examines the formation of our projected-self, and how our constructed identity is shaped by societal expectations.

Farid has appeared on Sky News, Fox News, Arte, BBC Radio 4, the Guardian, the Independent, the New Statesman, and has written about his work for the Telegraph.
