Blu Mulley’s art moves chaotically between essays and queer leftist memes. They flirt with the art industry to support their wider work as a youth and community worker. Coining the term ‘creatively engaged socio-political praxis’ as a relative of ‘socially engaged art’, they hope to assert the political intention of their work.
Blu notes: “I use art as a tool. I don’t make art intentionally; it happens as a result of a social practice that speaks far deeper to me than artistic intention”.
Rather than forcing ideas, Blu adopts a patient practice whereby they wait for a need to present itself and use art to invent creative solutions.
