Nitin Parmar is a multidisciplinary designer and artist and has an MA in Costume Design for Performance (University of the Arts London).
His work creates environments fusing imagery, set design, music, performance and costume to evoke sensory experiences beyond the confines of the conventional, and experimenting with merging physical costumes and stage sets with projected imagery.
His work encapsulates installations and costumes for film and stage.
The work on display centres around the context of migration, cultural identity and colonialism, reinterpreting lost cultural stories and fictional tales.
Other themes include exploring the materiality of the black, to create a sense of the real and unreal, merging the physical and the digital.
Previous works include designing sets for theatre, and costumes on large studios (Warner Bros) and independent films.
Nitin Parmar has shown his digital short film work by invitation at various events including the Aesthetica Short Film Festival (ASFF) 2022, and also the launch for the newly opened digital space The Outernet – the largest digital exhibition space in Europe.
Prior to pursuing costume and set design, Nitin Parmar had
a successful career within the fashion industry, working as a fashion and product designer as well as art directing and styling brand imagery.
