Texta Queen

Art Forms: Performance, Photography, Visual Art

Residency Year: 2016

Lives / Works: Australia

TextaQueen is known for using the humble fibre-tip marker (aka ‘texta’) to draw out complex politics of gender, race, sexuality and identity in vividly detailed works on paper. Their portraiture-focused practice expands across the photographic medium, murals, self-publishing, animations, performance and more to imagine an ever-expanding created universe representative of the psychic survival process of a person of colour amongst cultural and colonial legacies.

While in residence at Bundanon, TextaQueen created self portraiture allegorically articulating ideas of transplanted otherness, relative to identity in South Asian diaspora. The result was a body of work titled ‘Eve of Reconstruction’
