1978 Jean-Michel Basquiat was the “Black Artist”
1983 Keith Haring was the “Gay Artist”
2014 Jackie Frances is the “Trans Artist”
Jackie Frances is a Boston-based, transgender artist who creates all her pieces with Sharpies. Jackie’s work has been said to be a mix between Picasso and Keith Haring. As a child of the 80’s, her work is informed by the television, film, video and board games of that era: Tetris, Chutes and Ladders, Candy Land, Hell Raiser, The Muppets, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, Stephen King, etc. She believes that art is a journey toward equality and that nostalgia helps light the way.
