"Trouble and Femme" a paste-up in Collingwood, VIC. So there’s something about construction sites, abandoned buildings, and train stations that street and graffiti artists love, myself included. So that’s what sets the location. I’ve become really interested in depicting queer relationships in paintings. The models for this painting are Courtney Trouble and Lexi Laphor the photo is by Rae Threat.

"There are more settings than default" acrylic, gouache and markers on newsprint. Pasted in Collingwood, VIC (a neighborhood/suburb in Melbourne). The basic idea of this is that many people in the queer community see things like gender and sexuality as fluid things. For many people life is more than a simple label. I thought Johnny Blazes was a great subject for this, since they have so many fun projects like “Gender a day”.

"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.
