Artist Proposal - Felix D'Eon
I will be doing my artist proposal on Felix D'Eon a painter/illustrator. He is a queer Chicano man raised in California, but born in Mexico. His art focuses on celebrating LGBTQ identity through the replacement of commonplace figures for queerer ones. His aim is to empower a historically marginalized community while his works convey a different part of the LGBTQ community intended to celebrate this community. I want to focus my attention on D'Eon because he takes prominent pieces of Mexican culture and modifies them; effectively queering popular culture.
