As long as people have been making art, LGBTQ+ artists, like rule breaker California Artist RD Riccoboni, have been painting from their perspective. From gay painters like Leonardo da Vinci and Andy Warhol to bisexuals like Frida Kahlo and trans artists like Lili Elbe and Jeffrey Catherine Jones, the rainbow of great LGBTQ+ painters stretches around the world.
Like all of these artists have creating amazing bodies of work like flowering up masculinity with his, painterly, mystical, geometric, man maps, flower bear portraits or capturing LGBTQ+ events are changing art history books for the better. It’ difficult to determine who has truly left their mark. RD Riccoboni says: I don’t worry about that, I just do my best to create and get the art out there. My name is always new to some, but my paintings are familiar to many, I find that thrilling. It’s up to the collectors and fans to help determine which painters have made, or are making, history with their art, but the artist has to create it and do the work of getting it seen.
