Art Simone

Performing professionally for over a decade, Art Simone 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!’.

Art has worked with Coles, UberEats, BONDS, BWS, West Coast Coolers, Benefit Cosmetics, Google and Jetstar – to name a few – and 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 international touring, featured on ‘Have You Been Paying Attention’ and ‘Would I Lie To You’ plus headlined her Australian live show ‘As Seen On TV’.

With her podcast ‘Concealed with Art Simone’ now on the iHeart Radio network, and new digital series ‘Kick-Ons’. You won’t have to go far to get your fix, and thing’s for sure – drag will always be ART for the incredible Art Simone.
