TUTTI FRUTTI LGBTQIA+ life drawing presents KATY JALILI!
Tutti Frutti offers a monthly portion of life drawing with a queer flavour. Everyone is welcome to enjoy sketching and collaging at this LGBTQIA+ inspired series of salons.
THIS MONTH'S MODEL is.... KATY JALILI (pronouns: they/them)
Katy Jalili (Katayoun Jalilipour) is a genderqueer Iranian born multidisciplinary artist, performer and writer. Katy’s performance work covers a variety of night club entertainment, comedy, cabaret and burlesque, live art and spoken word. Some have described Katy’s performances as provocative, terrifying, erotic, political and wickedly entertaining, whilst channelling the spirit of punk. They are the founder behind FemmiErrect, a club night dedicated to fighting femme erasure in queer spaces. They are also the co founder of Genderfvcker, a nonbinary drag competition started in 2018. Katy was named as one of the top 5 queer artists in 2017 by i-D.
Created and led by Aaron Jacob Jones (360 life drawing/artist) and Nikki Shaill (Art Macabre/Drawing Jukebox). Designed to celebrate all the fruits in the bowl! Expect a fruity cocktail of colourful styling, fashion, inspiring LGBTQIA+ models, fun tunes and drawing tuition.
Tuition on hand for those who fancy it. Complimentary drawing and collaging materials provided, thanks to sponsor GreatArt.
