I am an architect, visual and tattoo artist. I’ve been working on the fat male body for a while, as a means of reconciling with my own. I’m very drawn to the plurality of identity, the body as territory and political narratives that stem from intimacy. I am very influenced by fashion and Japanese manga.

For this piece, I wanted to represent the fat man from a queer perspective, which comes from a series of mine titled MARIMACHO (which could be translated as “Tomboy”). I gave the character a certain erotism in an uninterested attitude. Personally, I find the representation of sex extremely boring.
