WERQ it

Recently, I was commissioned to create a custom 22 x 9 ft rainbow hued acrylic mural on glass for WERQ, a group exhibition by NOGO Arts and Cluster gallery at The Playground in Brooklyn, NY. Curated by Todd Coulter, the exhibition focuses on artwork that addresses how queer people are responding to, assimilating into and liberating society in the context of work. My freehand line drawing mural is a meditation on how queer people are redefining the traditional roles in the workplace, weaving together a creative tapestry of queer working identities like transgender cowboys, lesbian soldiers and wedding cake makers, social media influencers, gay construction workers, plus size models and queer healers and activists.
