Art Simone has claimed her position at the forefront of the Aussie entertainment industry and this down-under drag diva is just getting started.
Performing professionally for over a decade, Art is not only a dynamic live performer but an in demand social media powerhouse and media personality. She’s won titles, worked with some of the world's biggest brands, and has been globally celebrated for her incredible make-up looks - all before RuPaul’s Drag Race came knocking.
Art first stepped into drag in the early 2010s and has gone from strength to strength as one of Australia’s most in demand live performers. From touring extensively to representing Australia on the world stage, Art has brought her quintessential style and humour to literally thousands of events.
Focused on ensuring drag reaches regional Australia, Art has been celebrated for creating safe spaces for the LGBTQIA+ community and ensuring that pride is shared and celebrated where it’s needed most. It is this spirit of adventure that scored Art her own series on WOWPresents Plus - ‘Highway To Heel!’.
In the brand space, Art has always been a hot commodity. She’s worked with Coles, UberEats, BONDS, BWS, West Coast Coolers, Benefit Cosmetics, Google and Jetstar - to name a few - and has also partnered with AAMI Insurance to create the iconic television ad series ‘Hold onto your boa, babe!’.
Starring in the inaugural season of Stan’s ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under’, Art’s talent was shared with a whole new audience and immediately became a fan favourite. Bringing unique looks, showcasing her incredible talent and delivering the ultimate one-liners. As the series’ runner-up, she’s since welcomed her new fans, jumped into major Australian and international touring, featured on ‘Have You Been Paying Attention’, ‘Would I Lie To You’ and even featured in the 7/Netflix reboot of 'Kath & Kim'!
Always dedicated to delivering excellence in all its forms Art now hosts iHeart podcast, 'Concealed with Art Simone', has released Drag Race companion series 'Kick On's' and even made her acting debut as star of ABC's 'In Our Blood'! You'll soon be able to read all about her in her book 'Life Is ART' (Booktopia) and hear her on the KIIS radio network - phew.
It's clear that drag will always be ART for the incredible Art Simone.
