A stylized self-portrait piece addressing the exoticizing of queer brown/poc people in mainstream media.

This painting speaks to how each individual's narrative is varied and multitudinous, existing as part of the collective - these narratives are part of the universal human experience. This painting was published in The Arsonista Magazine volume 1.
