@hayleyemwall - The Art of Being Queer - Artist Feature

Tonight's queer artist feature is @hayleyemwall

Artist Statement:

Hayley is an illustrator whose work celebrates queer identities, explores mental health and class, and interrogates gender. Hayley is a working class queer artist originally from the Midlands and currently based in South-East London, UK.

Shape and gesture of the human form are important, with ambiguous figures and bodies featuring heavily throughout Hayley's illustrations. While the pictures are still, the figures are brought to life, giving them a sense of movement and continuation

Hayley creates personal work, which feeds into and informs commercial commissions. As an artist, Hayley enjoys using commercial work to explore prominent social themes, bringing about change and impact through art.
