MEET THE ARTISTS
The pseudonym of a street artist and curator based in New Orleans. Their work can be seen on murals and gallery walls in most major cities. While Hugo Gyrl is often cloaked in costume, and their identity remains mostly a mystery, they have generated a cult following due to the comical innuendos and femme-friendly symbolism echoed in their art. Affirmative statements like “You Go Girl” can be seen on walls from the French Quarter to the Bywater. When not creating thought-provoking LGBTQIA-focused graphics, Hugo Gyrl is curating local exhibitions.
