Ashton Blyth is a UK-based female-to-male transgender artist who creates artworks that challenge society's restraints on gender and sexuality.
Currently studying MA Fine Art: Digital at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, after completing a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Staffordshire University in 2021, the works you can view through the side-bar have been made during his explorations of identity both as a student and as a member of the LGBTQ+ community.
Blyth's animation Felt Right Then, Feels Right Now was selected for a number of film festivals over 2021 and 2022 and won several awards, with it next due to debut with Bloomberg's New Contemporaries at the Ferens Gallery and Humber Street Gallery in Hull from September 23rd, and at the South London Gallery from December 9th.
With this news having come after his artwork The Progressive Tube Map won the Young Artist category in the Visual Art Open 2021, it has been an exciting year for Blyth since graduating.
