TONIGHTS FABULOUS QUEER ART FEATURE IS:

@LUKE_CARTER_ART

Artist bio:

I developed a strong interest in illustration ( as I saw it- art for a purpose ) in college, after making art throughout my childhood. I went on to study a BA in Illustration at The University of the West of England.  I was driven chiefly by a passion for producing images related to social issues, politics and history. Since January 2018 I live and work in Leipzig, Germany. In Germany, I have begun to develop my own individual art practice alongside illustration work. In my personal work I often explore themes related to sexuality and my own identity as a gay man.

I specialise in traditional printmaking, primarily linocut. Having grown up in the digital world, something about the process of carving an image out of a surface from which I could then make multiple prints seemed magical in its tangibility. It presents unique challenges and unique rewards, with qualities which carry over to digital print and web reproduction.


We are exited to announce that Luke is part of our upcoming exhibitions - keep posted for more information!
