CELEBRATING PRIDE: LGBTQIA+ CREATIVES
LGBTQIA+ art has always been about stepping outside the comfort zone and exploring other ways of being. As it’s Pride Month, we're celebrating artists, designers and visionaries that are within the LGBTQIA+ community.
Florence King is a London-based British Fashion Designer, stylist & DJ. Her work draws inspiration from global history & politics to everyday biographical happenings, drawing in particular from the culture of North East London's queer community.
Mixed-media artist Enrico Nagel creates simple collages, featuring bold colours and thoughtful composition. His work often takes a satirical approach to representing the ideals of masculinity.
Alexander Glass' work explores the complex relationship between masculinity and desire. Spaces such as locker-rooms, swimming pools and nightclubs are frequently exploited as familiar contexts that are associated with the sexualisation of the male body.
London-based designer Dhenze draws much of their inspiration from another city with a thriving LGBTQIA+ scene: Berlin. Their primary focus has been on gender-free collections and is produced locally in London to lessen its carbon footprint.
