Steven Barrett creates images of celebrities and scenes from gay life entirely from multi-coloured glitter. This exhibition has been timed to coincide with Sheffield Pride 2010 which will take place later in June.
Steven is huge fan of popular culture and describes his influences as 'anything over the top'. Having graduated from St. Martin's College of Art, London, in 2000 he has exhibited his work in more than seventy group and solo shows world-wide. His work has recently appeared on the cover of Queer Street magazine and in Times Style, Sunday Times Supplement.
The exhibition, Glitterati, brings together new work with some of his favourite images of the last five years. The images in this show include depictions of street culture, Gay Pride, Marilyn Monroe and, of course, Judy Garland as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.
