THE RED ONE

'The Red One' features Tim Nelson, lead singer of the band Cub Sport and the artwork has finalised for the Midsumma and Australia Post Queer Art prize 2021.

Cub Sport and their message of self-acceptance and pride is entirely represented through the brushstrokes made by queer artist Kyle KM's hands. The artwork pays homage to Thomas Gainsborough's 'Blue Boy' and Kyle consciously reinterprets the status symbols that boasts wealth and power with the masterful royalty of a full body portrait adorned in the luxury of the times. Proudly holding four microphones, Tim wields the LGBTQIA+ rainbow flag along side the first initial of each band member.
