Featured above is LA-based figurative painter and muralist David Puck at work on a portrait of Vanessa Vanjie. Several more public works by a small sampling of the artists featured in “The Streets Are Queer” follow:
New Orleans-based Brooklyn-native Hugo Gyrl
The itinerant São Paulo-native Suriani
NYC-based Patron Saint of the Underground Jilly Ballistic
UK-based duo The Postman
