@hellohawwaa - The Art of Being Queer - Artist Feature

Tonight’s fabulous queer artist feature is @hellohawwaa

Artist Statement:

As a fashion designer whose main goal is to provide a voice and a sense of belonging to those who view my work, it often comes as a struggle to showcase my art with optimism due to my mental illnesses, traumas, and beliefs. I’ve been in a relatively dark place for a good amount of years now, but in order to divert from that headspace, I choose color, I choose light, I choose to create things that represent how I would like to feel. In turn, if I did my job correctly, providing others with the same freedom that coincides with happiness and that’s what fashion should always give. Not take.
