Guy James Whitworth - The Art of Being Queer - Artist Feature

Tonight's fabulous queer artist feature is Guy James Whitworth

Artist Statement:

Guy James Whitworth grew up in Northumberland, England and moved to Sydney over twenty years ago. He is one of those artists that try to use their powers for good and is as well known for his activism around animal rights and social reform as he is for his vibrant annual exhibitions. His style of rich, opulent portraiture often lends itself to elevating repressed and marginalized members of society using the authority of visual art as a medium to do so. He has won various awards and has been finalist in many of Australia’s art prizes. His first book ‘Signs of a struggle’ is out now published by Clouds of Magellan Press.
