An incredible preview night at our Digbeth Arts Space on Friday November 30th saw Digbeth get lit up in a riot of colour, vibrancy, style and personality as Dusty O's Dragged Back to My Roots exhibition sealed his triumphant return to Birmingham as an outstanding artist with a unique and colourful storytelling style.

 

300 wonderful people visited the launch party on the night adding flair and panache to an already pulsating celebratory art exhibition.

 

Digbeth Arts Space has never looked better! Seeing everyone wowed by the glorious colours of Dusty O's art in the flesh was a true highlight of the evening. Just imagine how good one of these outstanding pieces of art would look in your stylish home!

Both Dusty O and Digbeth Arts Space would like to give a special thank you to Davenport's Brewery and their Managing Director Wayne Davenport (pictured centre left below with Dusty O) for their incredible sponsorship and support of Dusty O's exhibition. They were joined by Katie McPhilimey (pictured right).

 25 years of spectacular stories are told through art in this collection. "My paintings are like vomit. They are my thoughts splattered on to a canvas. My approach may appear naive but my paintings are riddled with vice, lies, and hideous people doing unspeakable things".

 

 

These art stories from Dusty O's 25 years as the Queen of Soho include mesmerising themes of club culture, 80s pop stars, nightlife, drag queens, religion and icons.

 

Bright, bold, sexually charged, psychedelic and unapologetic this is not art that quietly blends into the background.

 

Take a tour of the vibrant world of Dusty O's art in this short video.
