John DOUGLAS

John Douglas Une Nouvelle Couleur TAG Cairns(1987)

BIO

John Douglas is an Australian multimedia artist whose exhibitions have received acclaim and caused controversy both in his home country and internationally.

 

He decided he wanted to be an artist and immediately began painting at the age of 8, and has never had any misgivings about his decision to follow the artistic path. He studied at the Queensland College of Art until his expulsion in 1984 for being a “disruptive and disturbing influence”, after which his career really took off.

 

In 1985 he had a two-person exhibition Notuvida Jungle with Sue Ryan at ‘THAT’ Contemporary Art Space, Brisbane. The opening night featured musical performances by alternative music group Ruah. The exhibition combined sculpture, paintings, prints, mixed media and music, interactive art stations in a setting of vines and jungle – Sue and John went to a recording studio and created audio works under the alias Alas Poor Eric Lost His Toupee specifically for the exhibition.

 

This recording created interest at local radio station 4ZZZ, where the track Acid, Wonder Dug was on rotation for a time. Alas Poor Eric were offered to perform their music live and a produce another recording, however through circumstances the follow-up “Horror House” never eventuated.

 

This show at THAT Space opened a world of alternative arts for John, and he attended many of the events and parties at THAT, The Observatory and One Flat. He was a founding member of the Tropical Artists Guild in Cairns, and his exhibition Preliminaries For ‘Big Smoke’ was the opening show forthe Guild. The next year a solo show Une Nouvelle Couleur was held at TAG and through the late 80’s John had several exhibitions at Rondeau gallery in Sydney.

John has since had many group and solo exhibitions in Australia, including for the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras festival (1994, 1995, 1997, 2003 & 2005) and an exhibition for Sydney’s cultural festival for the 2002 Gay Games. His international solo exhibitions include shows in Paris (France), Fort Lauderdale (USA), Bangkok (Thailand), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Geneva (Switzerland) and Shanghai (China).

 

He is an internationally published writer of fiction and non-fiction. He has been a regular cartoonist and writer for several publications. His photography encompasses a broad spectrum of themes, including for newspapers and magazines around the world and for corporate clients.

 

Douglas worked as the Visual Arts Director for the Queer As Fuck Arts Festival in Sydney, 1999.
He has been a Teaching Consultant in Art Therapy at Glenside Psychiatric Hospital, Adelaide, and occasionally conducts self-expression art workshops. In 2004 he was invited as Artist in Residence to conduct painting workshops at Lockhart River Aboriginal Community, Cape York.

 

In 2010 Douglas won the International Outrate Short Film Festival for his film ‘Ward 9’, a film about life in an HIV ward, and was given an Inspiration Award for his photograph ‘Imagine’ for World Peace Day in the USA.

 

A feature-length film “Sex Club”, a collaboration with performance artist Strykermeyer, premiered at the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2013 exhibition in Goulburn, Australia.
