Tonight’s queer artist feature is @freddelanka
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.
