Heavily inspired by drag artistry,  the figurative paintings represent an unapologetically queer POC subculture that is lacking recognition in current society.
highly sensationalized, Dionysian, subversive mix of high and low integrated with an intense color sensibility. The specific behavior of color coupled with an untraditional male gaze incites freedom and fun.
