About the Artist

Derek Jarman 1942–1994

English artist Derek Jarman studied at the Slade School of Art, London, in the early 60s, and was part of a group of young painters who embodied a changing mood in British art. From the late 1960s Jarman worked in set design. In 1976 he produced his first feature film.  In socially conservative Britain, his work made queer lives and history visible. From the 1980s, Jarman made music videos with artists including The Smiths, Marianne Faithful, Bob Geldof, Marc Almond, the Pet Shop Boys and Suede.
