After going to exhibitions in London and watching Gareth Pugh’s S/S 11 fashion video, I began to think about performance art, of course that made me think of Leigh Bowery. This artist was the man who inspired Boy George and of course we see a lot of his work in the musical Taboo, using fashion and make-up as his performance. I must agree some of it is rather creepy but some of it is funny and genius, so I guess you always get that with artists who are in your face with performance.
I rather enjoy his outfit and make-up, I’ve purposely picked images that appealed to me as an artist, things I can draw from as inspiration points. Which of course I love and couldn’t live without, it does give me a few ideas but maybe on the side of more high fashion rather then over the top lipstick like a clown.
