@freddelanka - The Art of Being Queer - Artist Feature

Tonight’s queer artist feature is @freddelanka

Artist statement:

My name is Fredrik Andersson.Originally from Sweden, for the last five years I have been based in London, working as an independent artist and educator. I work in a bold, colourful style across illustration, comic books and ceramics.  My work is humorous and strongly narrative and addresses topics ranging from queer culture, family dynamics and sex.

I am the artistic director for The Outside Project (UK’s first LGBTQIA+ Shelter and community centre) where I raise money, run workshops and facilitate the Project’s physical and digital spaces alongside the diverse group of stakeholders who use them.

Queer community is important to me. I believe that it is critical to recognise our own privilege and give back to the communities that inspire and educate my practice.

Make sure you follow the artist and The Art of Being Queer for regular queer content!
