We were pleased to welcome Daniel Lismore to our London studio to give a talk on LGBTQ+, the history, the community today and also discuss his experience.
Daniel Lismore is a London and Coventry based artist; Lismore has been a prominent fixture on the London Fashion and Art circuits and an activist for Human Rights and the environment for 20 years.
Although he started his career as an artist from the perspective of the outsider, working as a photographer within a year he had moved in front of the lens as a model, later emerging as a creative consultant for Mert & Marcus, Steven Klein, Martin Parr, David LaChapelle and Ellen von Unwerth.
Lismore has been named by Vogue as ‘England’s Most Eccentric Dresser’. In 2017 he was selected in the top hundred of the Out 100 List. In 2018 and 2020 he was named in the top hundred, Guardian’s Pride Power List.
In 2016, Daniel Lismore became the Circuit Ambassador for the Tate Museums. It was here that Lismore hosted his first two exhibitions in Tate Modern 2012 and Tate Britain 2013 featuring self-portraits.
Since the Covid 19 pandemic, Lismore has been working on LGBTQ+ activism and new art works. His show Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken is opening in February 2022 in Coventry City UK Capital of Culture at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum.
