Someone Just Killed Me, 2009, Donald Urquhart

Donald Urquhart’s work is known for its darkly humorous take on Hollywood glamour, with his fluid pen-and-ink drawings often featuring tarnished divas, fallen femme fatales and drag queens. That camp gothic sensibility also comes through in the sinister simplicity of Someone Just Killed Me. This witty piece reads like the final note of a murder victim in a Hitchcock thriller – one of Urquhart’s favourite references.

About the artist

After failing to get into art school in Glasgow, Donald Urquhart threw himself into ‘80s London’s drag-performance scene, partying with the likes of Leigh Bowery. In the ‘90s he worked as a model, fashion journalist and postman but it was The Beautiful Bend – the cabaret night he ran with Sheila Tequila and DJ Harvey - that saw him creating the monochromatic pen-and-ink posters that would launch his career in art. In 2005 he was shortlisted for the Beck’s Futures Award.
