Self-interview with selfie – Niall Kirby, artist

We copyrighted the idea in 2012. The concept is simple. We identify emerging creatives, interesting people who we believe will be captivating to read about. We invite people to interview themselves and to take a selfie. The self-interview with selfie was inspired by an empirical tool specifically for use in memory studies research. Our idea was developed to overcome some of the practical limitations of one-to-one interviews and address a new type of journalism. We ask queer creatives & interesting people to interview themselves. The manner can be through storytelling, diary-keeping, questions, images, sound or any other meaning of representation. We believe it is interesting what our guests wanna tell people about themselves avoiding the intrusion by another person. Today we invited Niall Kirby.

Do you paint women?

95%, if not more of my collectors and followers are male, I tend to draw most of the time men. As part of my first exhibition, I included all forms, male, female, and groups. One of my favourite pieces was a commissioned piece I did of a trans female to male. It has to be one of the most beautiful and exciting pieces I have done to this day.

Have you considered painting non-sexual scenes?

SMART. QUEER SMART.
