  • Every Hour is Ours - (pictured above) reminds us that Pride cannot be confined to a month or a season, it’s always and it’s uncontainable. The illustration shows a group of diverse LGBTQ+ people, wearing outfits in their respective pride flag colours, sat on a hill overlooking London’s Skyline. The piece is presented as a diptych, with each half representing day and night. Wherever you are and whatever the time, there is always community to celebrate pride – 100 Bishopsgate

Ashton Attzs is a 24 year old UK-based painter and illustrator. Ashton’s distinctive and charming characterful people that populate the majority of their paintings and illustrations are representative and inclusive of the endless identities and diverse expressions of the everyday person. Their unique world-building in popping bright hues creates a utopia, where everyone and anyone can step inside to dreamy landscapes and cheerful situations. Ashton’s art covers a range of topics from LGBTQ+ advocacy, visibility, unity, positivity, music and mental health. Their art seeks to empower LGBTQ+ people and people of colour on a global scale where they share their artworks publicly in a variety of ways. To date, Ashton has been commissioned by the likes of Instagram, Tate, Tottenham Hotspur FC, and Universal Music to name but a few. In 2018, Attzs won the coveted Evening Standard Art Prize: for their painting of transgender swimmers, Don’t Stay In Ya Lane.
