GARY JAMES MCQUEEN
Gary James McQueen was first introduced to the fashion industry by his late uncle Alexander McQueen, who mentored and inspired him to be the artist he is today. As head textile designer for the Alexander McQueen MRTW the artist developed a niche of optical-illusion textile design, constantly pushing himself and the boundaries of what could be achieved using a 3D canvas as the basis. Gary James McQueen worked alongside Alexander McQueen up until his passing in 2010, and was trusted with many personal projects including the Chrome Skull artwork, which has become iconic as the face of the Savage Beauty Exhibition commemorating Alexander McQueen’s life work. Today, Gary James McQueen combines a familial inheritance with his own artistic integrity to explore an innate dexterity for visual storytelling.
