For Pride month we are celebrating the talents and perspectives of LGBTQ2+ artists with a limited-edition run of Life in the Clouds. These cans feature the artwork of 4 artists from the global Queer community: Wednesday Holmes, Lisa Rose, Patricia Shim, and Tim Singleton. The series was carefully curated by Queer artist power couple Wee Moody Judy and Sarah Maxwell.
In anticipation of this series, we would like to acknowledge Pride’s riotous roots, and thank the Black and trans folks who started the movement. Pride would not be where it is today without Black leaders like Marsha P. Johnson and Stormé DeLarverie and in the spirit of intersectionality, it’s important we recognize their contributions.
Proceeds from the sales of the Pride cans will be donated through the More. community initiative to the Rainbow Railroad, an organization which helps LGBTQI people facing possible persecution around the world find a path to safety.
Wednesday is a London based artist, designer and community organizer with Voices 4 London where they are a member of the board of trustees.
Their main art project is based on Instagram, where Wednesday shares artworks about and for queer people to a global audience. Wednesday’s work seeks to provide education, empathy and kindness. Their art covers a range of topics such as TGNCI advocacy, mental health, recovery and unity. Alongside this Wednesday makes pro bono artworks for queer community organizing around the world.
Lisa Rose in an Italian-British illustrator based in Bristol, UK. Her work is inspired by female and queer experiences, bodies, sexuality, and empowerment. She focuses on creating more realistic images of people, especially womxn and marginalised genders, reclaiming them from the limits of mainstream media. This presents itself through colourful, vibrant artwork with strong feminist and body positive ethics, with references to classical art, pop culture, and vintage photography.
Patricia Shim is a tattoo artist and freelance illustrator. Growing up she wanted to be a children’s book illustrator but erotism got the best of her.
Tim Singleton is a designer, illustrator, and overall good time, living in Toronto, Canada.
