Piranha is an exploration of gender, trauma, and the imagination. They explore their mind’s obsessions and allow them to seep through their skin. Piranha is a trans person and activist whose artwork reflects this. They hope to create a platform for inquiry and visibility. You can see more of their work on their Instagram @piranha_queen.
