“How would you like to be remembered?”
“Oh I don’t know. Haven’t thought about that. Dead and gone.” – Freddie Mercury
A new portrait series by Pacific Northwest artist Chuck Knigge celebrates LGBT Pride Month and remembers the greatest voice of rock by playing dress-up with the most memorable queens of history, fiction, and pop culture.
“Long Live Queen Freddie!” features 16 oil paintings, watercolors, prints and digital illustrations, depicting the lead singer of Queen, Freddie Mercury, as equally iconic queens, ranging from historic figures, such as Queen Elizabeth I, to pop culture icons, like Queen Latifah and Queen Amidala.
