Alexander McQueen was a British fashion designer who was known to push fashion’s limits to unknown extremes. McQueen became head designer of Givenchy fashion line, and in 2004 he launched his own menswear line. McQueen earned the British Fashion Council’s British Designer of the Year award four times. McQueen’s rise from lower-class high school dropout to internationally famous designer is a remarkable story. His bold styles and fascinating shows inspired and wowed the world of fashion, and his legacy lives on.
David X is a mixed media contemporary artist who creates striking paintings fusing Eastern and Western artistic traditions. David X started studying art when he was 7 at after-school art classes with peers nearly 3 times his age. This experience kick-started the mental and physical database of references that he continues to draw on for his paintings today.
David X was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2002 but was given life through a successful bone marrow transplant. In 2017, doctors detected a recurrence which left him with less than one year to live. David X felt compelled to create 365 inspirational paintings during the last year of his life. When tests eventually revealed that leukaemia had not returned, and his life was no longer threatened, he challenged himself to continue the paintings to fulfill his dream and inspire hope. His works are mainly portrait paintings of well-known figures, both historic and contemporary.
