Jamie McCartney is a multi award-winning, professional artist based in the UK, working largely in sculpture and experimental photography. His main interests are the human body and the human condition.
Often socio-political, frequently sexual, his artworks are never dull. A bachelor degree in Experimental Art from Hartford Art School in the USA wasn’t the immediate road to riches he expected, yet for some reason it still informs much of his practice, which leans towards narrative, provocation and absurdity.
He embraces new media and actively collaborates with other artists, scientists and the public. Jamie appears frequently in the world’s media discussing his work, censorship and the power of art as a tool for social change.
Our society would benefit from a more enlightened attitude towards our sexual bodies and artists have a critical voice in that conversation. Viva la Vulvalution!Jamie McCartney
