Project details

Overview

GLAM is a reflection of today's world - of how its societal norms have been tested as man becomes more divided, yet simultaneously accepting of new concepts. Inspired by the unique artistry displayed by drag queens, GLAM depicts an ambiguous human figure under an intricate feminine guise, lined in an intense red. Through the use of linear technique, this work conveys unapologetic passion and confidence. From a technical standpoint, it utilises principles of fashion and graphic design, showcasing ideas that would align with projects within those career domains. However, as 'the icon' stares into the distance, potential audiences are invited to ask questions about them and their story.
I was raised with open, accepting views and a passion for creativity. I had my own struggles with discrimination and self-esteem due to my autistic background and anxiety issues. But with inspiration from LGBT+, POC and neurodiverse public figures, I have found my own strength - now I honour their story.
