  • About the work
  • About the artist
    Writer, performer and artist Donald Urquhart was born in 1963 in Dumfries, Scotland. He moved to London in 1984 and started collaborating with performance artist and fashion designer Leigh Bowery. Urquhart embraced Bowery’s drag-performance world and set up the underground club night The Beautiful Bend, which he ran throughout the 1990s. Interest in the imagery and artwork for the flyers, illustrated booklets, and posters for this club has resulted in a number of exhibitions of Urquhart’s darkly humorous pen and ink drawings. As an artist, Urquhart has exhibited widely with work included in group exhibitions such as The Black Album, at Interim Art, London (2004), Publish & Be Damned, Cubitt, London (2004) and I Still Believe in Miracles, Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2005). He was nominated for Becks Futures prize in 2005.
