West Queer Art was founded in 2020.
The current main creator is Shar, a queer activist and artist living in Galway, Ireland. They live with their partner in Galway city. While they were always interested in art and being creative, they didn't always had the capacity and confidence to create pieces to share with the world.
Through their journey of recovery, navigating multiple lockdowns, chaotic pandemic times, and the general woes of 2020, West Queer Art was formed as a sanctuary for their creativity and expression.
If this platform continues to succeed, Shar hopes it can be shared with other local queer artists who may be struggling to get their work out there throughout our new world -combining their online skills and uplifting fellow creators! Watch this space!
