Jarman, Derek

Jarman, Derek
   b. 1942, Northwood; d. 1994, Dungeness
   Painter and film-maker
   Derek Jarman’s protean career as artist, designer, film and video maker, writer, gardener, media celebrity and AIDS activist began with his first major painting exhibition at London’s Liston Gallery in 1969. Jarman designed visually striking sets and costumes for theatre and cinema, notably for Ken Russell’s films The Devils and The Savage Messiah. While experimenting with Super 8 film-making techniques, Jarman completed his first feature film, Sebastiane (1975). He went on to direct an innovative and controversial oeuvre of gay cinema including Jubilee, Caravaggio, The Last of England, The Garden, Edward II, Wittgenstein and Blue. Jarman died of AIDS in 1994.
