Who is QUIL LEMONS?
All starting with the Frank Ocean video for his track 'Nike', this music video was a pivotal moment for Lemons, a moment where everything he knew growing up was challenged. When it came to race and gender, makeup, style, and fashion, it all came crashing down in a spiral that would make anyone's head spin at just 17 years old.
Now a college student and talented artist, that same motivation to disturb the peace of the conservative world we sadly live in, Lemons' decorated black men in glitter, photographing them in a way that shines a light not only on the issues above, but also capturing the happiness and freedom expressed when you explore outside of the box everyone seems to want to place each other in just to stay comfortable.
Lemon's series, 'Glitterboy' showcases all of these moments moments of truth, expression, and freedom.
