“Drake Carr's Favorite Thing" | Art21 "New York Close Up”

submitted by Huzzaz on 05/06/24 1

Amidst the disco balls of a queer dive bar or on the white walls of a commercial art gallery, artist Drake Carr exhibits his glamorous and heartfelt portraits of friends, peers, and fictional characters inspired by a deep affection for ‘80s fashion illustration and the D.I.Y. aesthetics of queer erotica. This documentary short captures the artist as he celebrates his final days as a bartender at Happyfun Hideaway and transitions to becoming a full-time artist. Drake Carr was born in 1993 in Flint, MI, and currently lives and works in New York City, NY.
