Suriani, who is from Sao Paulo and has been living and working in Paris since 2007, has become well-known for his depictions of drag queens through street art.

"As the political debate about equal rights has been quite active in France recently, I decided to get inspiration from it for my recent work. I have chosen the figures of drag queens because they match the positive vibe I have been trying to transmit with my work," said the artist.

The fashion designer himself has approved of the most recent street homage.
