Nelson - The Art of a Being Queer

Tonight’s queer artist feature is Nelson - @chunkyvibes


My name is Nelson and I am a digital illustrator/graphic designer based in Brooklyn, NY. Being self-taught, my illustration style is constantly evolving; however, my work mainly focuses on body positivity and the bear community. The bear community has always had this shroud of masculinity surrounding it and could seem intimidating to outsiders, my aim is to dispel that myth. Through my work, I explore blending the worlds of masculinity and femininity, drawing inspiration from Kawaii culture and artists like “Tom of Finland,” creating a world where both aesthetics can coexist
