This image was inspired by the artist's personal experience of having immigrated to the US in 2020 during an intense election year. By inserting his queer body into this polarized political landscape, the artist "queerizes" the space, injecting colors and flamboyance. The Poses and the title are inspired by 1950s homo erotica—the so-called "physique magazines".
