Donald Urquhart is a performer, playwright, poet and artist who draws inspiration from queer culture and the club scene Leigh Bowery epitomised in the 1980s. As a visual artist he gained recognition in the 1990s through his drawings used as flyers, posters and wall decorations for 'The Beautiful Bend', an underground nightclub which the artist co-founded. The club ran from 1993 to 2002 and afterwards, in 2003, the artworks were exhibited at Magnani. Urquhart has since presented solo exhibitions at Jack Hanley, San Francisco; Maureen Paley, London; White Columns, New York and Herald St, London and has participated in group exhibitions at Dulwich Picture Gallery and ICA in London, CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts in San Francisco and The State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg.
