It depicts the Artist’s bare chest with a Pink upturned Triangle entitled “ In Memoriam” The work was originally made in 2015. 


The Artist has said he is saddened of it’s disappearance and hopes it can be returned home to his studio for the prosperity of the nation. 


The work was sold as prints at HOMOPROMO Hosted by Herman Miller, Holborn, London  in Aid of Stonewall in Autumn 2017. The prints raised lots of funds for this great charity. However now the original has gone missing. 


He has created a poster of the missing and valuable Art work which commemorates, documents, empowers and memorialises a very dark time in Queer and Global History. He has asked for it to be shared far and wide on social media. To help find this important work. The Art work was due to go on display for another exhibition. 


He is taking legal advice on the missing Art work. 


“A pink triangle has been a symbol for various LGBTQ identities, initially intended as a badge of shame, but later reclaimed as a positive symbol of self-identity. In Nazi Germany in the 1930s and 1940s, it began as one of the Nazi concentration camp badges, distinguishing those imprisoned because they had been identified by authorities as homosexual men,[1] a category that also included bisexual men and transgender women.[2] In the 1970s, it was revived as a symbol of protest against homophobia, and has since been adopted by the larger LGBT community as a popular symbol of LGBT pride and the LGBT rights movement.[3][4]

QUEER ARTISTS NOW, ARCHIVE GALLERY, LONDON, OCTOBER, 2017.

The exhibition Queer Art(ists) Now will provide a snap-shot of what artists within our communities are making right now; an insight into the thoughts, preoccupations, aesthetics, and politics of queer artists. We are interested in the work YOU are making, the content and style is influenced by what you submit. So whilst you are Queer/LGBTQIA+ the work does not necessarily have to represent this, but equally can, and will. The exhibition will present a kaleidoscope of your artistry, as a window on what the fuck is going on.

Up to 50 artists will be selected by our panel to be included in a salon-style exhibition taking place at Archive Gallery in Haggerston, London, between  Thursday 12th – Sunday 15th October.
