About The Artist

Australian queer artist David McDiarmid created a fiercely humorous, politically acerbic and highly decorative body of work focusing on liberationist politics. He was a Gay Liberation activist in the 1970s and his later work focused on the sexual and cultural politics of AIDS, raising awareness of the epidemic and empowering those who were HIV positive. In an artistic career based in Melbourne, Sydney and New York, he was a graphic designer, fabric painter for women's and men's fashion and creative director for the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras street parades as well as a widely exhibited artist. Since his death of HIVAIDS in 1995 his work has been warmly embraced internationally.
