@to.re.ro.me - The Art of Being Queer - Artist Feature

Tonight's queer artist feature is @to.re.ro.me

Artist Statement:

I am @to.re.ro.me and I'm a digital surrealist from Rome.

I work as Vj and visual artist and I’ve spent the last years working in the Italian gay entertainment, exploring the new media field.

As showbiz is still too linked to conventional beauty standards, many times I’ve been forced to ask myself what beauty really is and if there is any objective beauty, anything that disregards personal taste.

I found out that the "experience of beauty" often involves an interpretation of some entity as being in balance and harmony with nature. Although the interpretation is itself a subjectivisation, being in harmony with our environment, feeling in the right place and at the right time accomplishing our own mission is a constant in the pursuit of beauty/happiness.

That's the reason why my artwork usually represents queer public figure portraits combined with natural elements.

My surrealist queer fantasies, express admiration for those people who live their life with confidence, thus helping the queer community and all human beings to push boundaries even further.

The objective, ancestral beauty of the elements I include in my pictures aims at reminding that beyond the flesh, there is an extraordinariness which can be expressed by everyone.
