San Francisco based street artist Jeremy Novy is a pioneer in the Queer Street Art movement. His in-your-face street art, which has featured (but is not limited to) drag queens, penises and homosexual imagery has made headlines across the country. Novy funneled that attention into curating an exhibit called “A History of Queer Street Art,” which features some of the world’s most prominent gay, bisexual, lesbian, transgender, and a few straight street artists. The exhibit recently concluded its run at SOMArts in San Francisco and I caught up with the reclusive artist to ask him a few questions.

According2G: How’s the street art scene in San Francisco and how are you treated by other artists in the scene?
Jeremy Novy: I moved to San Francisco specifically for the city’s love and acceptance for street art that is art other than letter graffiti. The city was lacking a stencil artist for a number of years and still has very few. The city sees my talent, yet some artists feel queer street art isn’t tough enough for the streets due to homophobia.
What a scene! The opening night gala reception for the art exhibit “QUEER: FROM ZERO TO A HUNDRED” at the Theater for the New City in New York was insanely fun. The exhibit features works from Scooter LaForge, Johnny Rozsa, Aaron Miller, Barnaby Whitfield, Pete Hocking, Julie Smith, Peter J. Ketchum, Ricky Longo-Burrows and Tracy Phillips. The space is enormous, the art is great and the artists are so talented. The Toilet Boys’ Miss Guy was spinning tunes all night and Johnny Rozsa and Scooter LaForge met fans and signed copies of their latest books “Untouched” (by Johnny Rozsa) and “Scooter LaForge” (by Scooter LaForge). The reception was so crowded, I will have to go back to get a better look at the art. In the meanwhile, please enjoy a few party pix. Good news for all of us, the exhibit runs until August 9, 2011, so don’t miss it! Theater for the New City is located at 155 1st Avenue in New York.
