Information

Velvet Butler Carroll, also known as Rudi Blu, graduated with a degree in Fine Art from UWE Bristol in 2022.

Carroll is a Drag King artist working with different mediums to discuss inclusivity, queerness and nature through their work. They work with tactile materials such as ceramics and textiles, connecting these physical objects to performances and video works. Most recently their practice has focused on the creation of garments from scrap fabrics and common weeds, creating a link between the phenomenal qualities of nature and that of a queer body.
