Last night unveiled the new work of Paul Fryer in Soho-London.
Fryer’s prolific career in music, fashion, and art gives him enough credibility to draw in a crowd.
“Paul Fryer lives and works in London, England. He studied art briefly at the Leeds College Of Art in the 1980s but never did a degree in the subject, electing instead to be an electropop singer, and then to graduate as a transvestite DJ. In the early 90′s he was instrumental in the creation of the widely acclaimed Art-based clubs The Kit Cat Club and Vague, also in Leeds where, for reasons that are not entirely clear, he stayed until 1996.
Since moving to London he has designed books and other printed material for several artists, fashion houses and record labels as well as working as technical consultant for several contemporary artists. During this period he wrote a book of poetry, Don’t Be So…, which was illustrated by Damien Hirst and published by Trolley Books in 2001.
He recently left the Italian house Fendi after 5 years as musical director. His critically acclaimed multimedia show Electronic Elvis was successfully performed at several London venues in 2003 & 2005 and was released on vinyl in 2005.
He has shown at various shows and galleries including Lead By The Nose, Livestock Market, 1996; The Quick And The Dead, Leeds City Art Gallery, 1998; Sleight of Hand, Transposition, Curtain Rd 1999; 2001 A Space Oddity, James Birch, A22 Gallery 2001; The Courtauld Collection Show 2002; The BBC4 Launch, Old Saatchi Gallery, 2002; The Ark, T1+2, 2005; New Gothic, Tate Britain February 2006.
His solo shows so far include: Carpe Noctum, Trolley Gallery, 2005; Petit Mal, Masonic Temple (in association with Kirsty Stubbs Gallery), 2006; Radiations, Julius Werner Berlin, 2006.” -Paul Fryer Site
