“With my contempt for self-marketing, I refuse to work with plans, and my most often-used sentence in any conversation is ‘I don’t know.’ I don’t know, I’m a man of the unknown, let’s keep our fingers crossed and wish me good luck with that.” –Xiaobing Fan, 2022

“Outside of the extremely straightforward pornography I make for OnlyFans my work is heavily focused on telling authentic and uncensored stories about my sex life as a promiscuous and adventurous trans woman. Even when my work explicitly addresses trauma and sexual abuse, I’m still heavily in dialogue with classic gay porn comics and zines.” –Carta Monir, 2022

“Recently, I worked for Patpong Museum – one of the rare institutions to focus on Thailand’s sex industry and its history. They offered a collaboration with sex workers as models for my class. Beyond this full-circle moment linking my childhood to practice  it also inspired me to further explore explicit homoeroticism and queer anthropology within my drawings as well as my practice.” –Oat Montien, 2022

Meet Oat Montien, artist-in-residence

    “I was born in Bangkok’s Donmaung area in 1989. Just like other near-airport suburbs it always has brothels to accommodate lonesome travellers.
