Leigh Bowery’s Creepy and Grotesque Fashion Statement

Leigh-Bowery-03

Leigh Bowery was born in Melbourne in 1961. He achieved major stardom through his grotesque and monster-like costume designs and his stage performances during which he would appear naked, painted or clad in lurex tight garments stretching over his enormous belly, relishing the opportunity to shock and flout convention whenever possible.

Bowery remained active in art and theatre circles until his death from AIDS-related illness in 1994.
