Em Cooper

Em Cooper is a British artist and film director working in oil-paint, animation and film. She is the 2024 winner of the Grammy for Best Music Video, for her oil-painted video for The Beatles, I’m Only Sleeping, commissioned in 2022 for their re-release of Revolver. In 2018 she was nominated for an Emmy for her collaboration with poet and activist DJ Savarese, in the film Deej. Her installation work includes Emergence, an immersive artwork and collaboration with composer Jim Perkins for the Turner Contemporary Margate. Her distinctive style of continuous motion in oil-paint combines psychological insight with an intuitive method of working the paint: each frame is painted by hand.

Em Cooper collaborates with Tonic DNA in Canada and the U.S.
