@Manumojitoart - The Art of Being Queer - Artist Feature

Tonight's fabulous queer artist feature is @Manumojitoart

Manuel Parra (Manu Mojito), is a visual artist with an emphasis in plastic arts. He graduated from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana and his specialty is fashion photography. Within this area he has had long experience and participated in exhibitions in Spain, Berlin, Brasil, Mexico and New York.

He has explored with his work the notion and identity representation of the contemporary men creating an alter ego, Manu Mojito, a character which comes from the fashion world, and acts among different jet set personalities. He explores the different beauty models and their ideals from fame and beauty. He creates these characters supposedly with the social beauty standards as well as all social parameters.

Manu Mojito has consolidated himself as a genre artist due to his proposal towards a queer aesthetic, he also likes to explore and work with the LGBTI population developing not only photography but creating different types of events. His work stands out as a conscious research regarding the trans world.
