Artist Wilfrid Wood met his muse, Theo Adamson, on a gay hook-up app. Over the course of their sessions, what began as an artist-model relationship developed into something more. Now officially BFs (boyfriends), Wilfrid continues to draw Theo regularly and has somewhat effortlessly amassed hundreds of drawings that were brought together for an exhibition appropriately titled ‘Drawings of my BF’. As Wilfred studies Theo, and Theo returns his gaze, the two lovers discuss the romantic ideals and human realities of the sketcher-subject dynamic and the role that creating art together has played in their lasting connection.
