#Softlads by Olly Bliss

Oliver Bliss has spent two years creating large scale tapestries for his first solo show as part of SHOUT! Festival. The tapestries aim to explore notions of masculinity and contemporary behaviour in society. Themes span from contemporary hero worship, body image, activism, sexuality, gender variation and history of identity. The work explores why we promote ourselves on social media and its impact. The pieces aim to celebrate and question how online sub-cultures have developed through hashtags to create online global communities.
