"Queer Voyeur" is a hand painted paste-up in Fitzroy (a neighborhood in Melbourne). This is another that’s based on The Identity Project photos. The photo is of Isabel Dresler, who is herself a photographer.

Queering the streets with some detailed stickers. This past month has been pretty full of other, non-street art, stuff. So I have only had time to make small paintings. Here’s a number of stickers that are queering up the Fitzroy & Collingwood neighborhoods.

Its winter here in Melbourne, which means rain and wind. So putting up some paintings out in the open air is not so fun, and the weather kind of ruins them pretty fast. So the alternative is to find dry places, like  abandoned buildings around Melbourne. The buildings are eventually torn down, usually to make gigantic apartment buildings so wealthy young people can take over the neighborhoods that used to be affordable for people who make less (like female-female couples or trans people).
These portraits are of two lovely queers Drew Deveaux and Zahra Stardust.

"Queer Femme" based on a photo from the Identity Project. This photography project explores the labels people use to identify sexuality and gender. The photos are powerful, intriguing and fun. So I’m happy to say I will be using these as some of my source material for paintings.

Queer the Streets participated in an unauthorized group exhibition of art here in Melbourne. For the show several street artists banded together to create a “gallery” space in a popular graffiti filled alley. All work was given away for free. When we announced the location people were seen running to the location. She show was a big success, and was well covered on several art media. To see a comprehensive photo set check out http://allthoseshapes.com/outsiders/

The idea behind Queer the Streets is to normalize queer aesthetics, through art. One of my favorite photos is shown above of a person carrying home a nude painting of trans woman (Chelsea Poe). They later posted a photo of it displayed in their living room. Everyone who visits their house will see this imagery. I love that!
