@nlmkart - The Art of Being Queer - Artist Feature

Tonight's queer artist feature is @nlmkart

Artist Statement:

My art is my own interpretation of the parallels beauty and lechery, light and dark, stillness in a state of flux. The allure of the taboo.

I aim to liberate my audience by evoking emotion and self expression; illuminating that which resides in the shadows.

I like to challenge the psych and the conflict of the subconscious mind through it’s associations.  Desire and disdain, the guilt of unbridled lust captivated by the shapes and silhouettes of the naked body married with the fragility and erotica of the male flesh.

Inspired by the up-cycling and recycling culture, as well as pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Banksy I bring these homoerotic sentiments forward in contemporary statements, by using mediums such as maps and pages from books to create a personal intimacy with the viewer.

My art evokes contemplation and discovery of self, which conflicts the judgment and moral superiority one often feels when observing others. It unapologetically pushes the boundaries of extreme exploration through hedonistic pursuits and is the true essence of the simplicity of beauty transfixed in chaos and fantasy.
