Artfucker is visual identity that emerged in early 2017. Never one to be constrained to a medium, the New-York based artist, uses a combination of manipulated photography, video and mixed media to transport viewers into a surreal environment.
Inspired by gender identities, queer culture, and their passion to create, these pieces communicate unspoken feelings and moods.
Artfucker's known for using macro shots of the human body with everyday environments and objects.
"I work a lot with macro shots of eyes, and mouths as a window. But I am most proud of my 'drag art'. I just coined that phrase, but my work has been evolving into different gender expressions. My favorite pieces illuminate the fact that gender is a social construct."
Ilegal Mezcal and Gramercy Park Hotel’s Rose Bar have come together to collaborate on a quarterly art series. Curated by Rose Bar’s Creative Director, Matthew Green, and Ilegal Mezcal’s brand team lead by Kaylan Rexer, the series takes place in Ilegal’s West Village home, the old Perry Street theatre.
The ongoing gallery series aims to showcase art within an experiential environment. The mission is to activate all five senses by creating a physically and mentally stimulating artistic experience. Ilegal Mezcal and Rose Bar aim to create a genuine, unique approach to their exhibitions by establishing a sense of community through the shared personal experience of the art in an intimate setting beyond the four walls of Rose Bar at Gramercy Park Hotel. This environment provides a platform for the art to speak for itself and allows the artist to fully benefit from the profits of their work.
