@sonny_flynn - The Art of Being Queer - Artist Feature

Tonight‘s fabulous queer artist feature is @sonny_flynn

Artist Statement:

My name is Sonny flynn and I’m and 25 year old illustrator and children’s book designer based in London. I have always been seen as “different” my entire life and growing up in a rough all boys school was really traumatic. In that way art has always acted as an escape and a kind of therapy for me allowing me to separate from my struggles and create my own brightly coloured realm. As I have grown older I have somewhat flipped the canvas and instead art for me has become a catalyst for activism and sending a positive message - a message sometimes I wish I had heard when I was a little boy or even messages that I think need to be heard today. Life is tough and art is a beautiful so why not use it to spread love 💛
