what PRIED means to me..

I created a 18 x 10 ft mural on metallic Vinyl for PRIED, a group exhibition at the Society of Arts and Crafts Boston. It is a free hand, automatic line drawing mural that serves as a dramatic entrance into the exhibition, and is a meditation on identity play with a queer focus. Interwoven into the imagery are loose portraits of Justin Bond, Lana Wachowski, Sylvia Rivera and my boyfriend I sharing a kiss.

Curated by Izzy Berdan and Dave J. Bermingham, PRIED explores the vision, artwork and craft of LGBTQAI artists living and working in the US Northest area. In addition the mural, I also exhibited of my ‘Sports Jersey’ Banners “GIRLS WILL BE BOYS” & “THAT WAS NOW, THIS IS THEN” Exhibition runs from April 25-June 30, 2019.
