VISUAL ARTIST


Lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.

 

Garrett Huxley is a contemporary artist with over a decade’s experience of creating lots of wonderful visuals and objects. He studied at the Queensland College of Art completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts and is one half of a creative partnership with his partner William, known as The Huxleys.   

The Huxleys are Will and Garrett Huxley who’s shared background in costume design, photography, video and performance has informed their practice, a living, ever evolving collage of still images, moving image, and dazzling performances.

The Huxleys have exhibited artwork in installations, fashion shows, performances and photographic exhibitions and festivals across the world including Hong Kong, London, Tokyo, Berlin and Australia. Their work reflects their iridescent hyper real world, full of arresting shapes, lurid colour, extreme theatrics and an ethos of glamorous androgynous abandon.
