This is a portrait from of a series supporting my previous exhibition #SoftLads.
The piece explores the hashtags which are used less by men to describe themselves. This artwork includes the frame (image size 12.5cm x 18cm)
The portrait series explores notions of masculinity on Instagram. The portraits focus on men with tattoos. The themes span from contemporary hero worship, body image, activism, sexuality, gender variation and history of identity. The work explores why we promote ourselves on social media and its impact. The pieces aim to celebrate and question how online sub-cultures have developed through hashtags to create online global communities
