Still: Isn't It a Beautiful World

Joseph WILSON is a queer artist, activist, filmmaker and drag performer, living amongst the eclectic East London community. He graduated from the University of the Arts London with a BA in Fine Arts with a focus on print and time-based media. His work explores LGBTQIA+ narratives, taking inspiration from his own lived experiences as well as documenting the people and places around him, amplifying their voices and celebrating their stories through his art. Wilson's first documentary project Drag is my Ecstasy (2014) was accepted into the programme of the BFI Flare: London LGBTQIA+ Film Festival. He has also had work premiere at BFI London Film Festival, FRINGE Queer Arts Festival as well as global video platform NOWNESS. Wilson was selected as one of the FLAMIN (Film London Artists Moving Image Network) artists in recognition of his film Isn’t it a Beautiful World (2021), which is also part of the Tiger Short Competition at IFFR 2022. In September 2021, Wilson was selected as one of the 2021 DAZED X CIRCA artists and had his work screened on Piccadilly Circus, Shinjuku, Tokyo and K-Pop Square, Seoul.
