About the Artist

Jaime Welsh’s highly-constructed photographs – often of clinical, official interiors – depict figures in architectural space as allegories for anxious or tense psychological ones. His research focuses on the formal relationship between humans and architectural space and the evocation of psychological interiority through photography.


Jaime Welsh was born in 1994 in Lisbon, Portugal and he lives and works in London where he graduated from Goldsmiths (2018-2021) as a scholarship recipient of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Goldsmiths University. Recent projects have been exhibited at South London Gallery, Galeria Madragoa, Firstsite Museum; White Cube (online); Castor Gallery; Saatchi Gallery; Piccadilly Lights; Galeria Graça Brandão; Gallery 46 Whitechapel. Recent awards include Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2021; Tomorrow by White Cube 2021 and Circa Art Class of 2020. Welsh has been an artist in residency at Rua das gaivotas 6 and Tate Exchange at Tate Modern. Public collections include the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum and the MACE (Antonio Cachola’s) collection.
