My name is Conor Merriman and I’m looking for your help.
I am an Irish artist who is asking you, the people of the world whether you are a member of the LGBT or an ally, to contribute to my global art project.
What I am trying to do is “re brand” what it means to be gay, take away the negativity and create something together.
The goal of this artistic collaboration is for those who would like to take part to send an image of themselves as themselves, whoever you are. It could be a picture of you in your job doing what you love doing, a picture of you and your family and friends or any image that depicts who you are. These images can then be accompanied by a sentence about yourself further emphasising who you are. If you would like, you could share your coming out story, a word of advice, anything that you think could be a positive outlook on the LGBT community!
These images and words will be created into illustrations and collections done by myself that will not only appear online, but be the source of an art exhibition in my college, The National College of Art and Design.
If you could contribute to this project in anyway you can, it will be enriched and artistically beautiful. We will show the world who we are.
