Gary James McQueen is an artist with authentic and intriguing connections to the world of high fashion.
First introduced to the fashion industry by his late uncle, Alexander McQueen in 2005, Gary was employed as head textile designer for the McQueen Menswear RTW, and given freee reign to explore the innovative and niche skill of using a 3D canvas to create optical-illusion textile design.
Forging a unique partnership with his uncle, which continued until the death of Alexander McQueen in 2010, Gary was trusted with the delivery of many personal projects. Art pieces including the Gold Skull artwork, which would become the iconic case of the V&A's best selling "Savage Beauty" Exhibition (2015) commemorating Alexander McQueen's life work, illustrate the breadth of projects undertaken.
In 2018 Gary James McQueen combines a familial inheritance of his uncle 'Lee' Alexander McQueen with his own artistic integrity to explore an innate dexterity for visual story telling. Spanning both the fashion and art world, and as the following selected works can show, here is a creative practitioner with an accomplished and powerful aesthetic.
