Hagra is part of #TheGalleryProject. #TheGalleryProject includes artworks from 47 artists from 27 different countries. Each work reflects a unique perspective and as a whole, the exhibition series refuses to present a standardized narrative. Rather, it becomes clear that being queer means something different to each artist, whether sexually, politically, or aesthetically.
Each artist represented in the exhibition has developed their own strategies for coping with their lived realities and addressing (or not addressing) them in their art. The works displays sex, fragility, anger, courage, hope, nihilism, strength, fear, and beauty.
About the artist and artwork:
Hey! My name is Hagra. I’m an artist and illustrator from Russia, Tatarstan. Sometimes I participate in exhibitions in my country and abroad. But most important for me is to show my work on the Internet, because I believe the Internet is one of the most democratic platforms.
I‘m a feminist, transgender man and pansexual. And I draw people like me for people like me 🙂 So the main theme of my work is queer sexuality, gender identity, different types of discrimination and classism.
My artworks are exploring different forms of sexuality and interactions with gender identity, especially those that are not represented in the mass media, interweaving of masculinity and femininity.
