Drag Queen is a designation for a man who caricatures women - by dressing up like her, by make-up, demeanour. It is a case of assimilation, i.e. not a condition where he would really want to feel like a woman. The aim is to have fun, so often these are 'ordinary men," who take disguise and make-up just as a form of entertainment.
In 2009 in America ran a very popular competition, RuPaul's Drag Race, which made the scene of drag queen popular. Fun features of this reality show helped social acceptance of this alternative scene and to break up the myths that enveloped it. At the same time a way was made for a new wave of innovative drag queens that assailed social networks with their new approach to "drag make-up". That was the birth of luxurious Hungry.
The artist performing under the name Hungry comes from Berlin and offers his audience a look at alternative reality in which human body is forced to adapt to new surroundings. He studied fashion design in Berlin; collaborated with Vivienne Westwood in London. His luxurious work includes make-up, photography, modelling, a tailor shop as well as scenery performances.
Hungry creates new specific aesthetics, used also by Björk for her album Utopia. From faces he creates stunning masks using luxury surrealistic make-up, the body is then used as canvas, he plays around with snake-like curves, pearls and a wide range of colours. The optical illusions that she created by her art have a stunning and often very luxurious result.
Make-up takes approximately 2-2.5 hours. If you hanker after the overall look, including the clothes, it takes about a week. Hungry dresses as a drag queen not only for parties, but you can meet him like this also in public transport, a shopping centre or somewhere in a restaurant.
