Nancy Boy Limited Edition Linocut Print

"Nancy Boy" is a limited edition linocut print that pays homage to the term's multifaceted history within queer culture. Originating as a derogatory term in early 20th-century Britain, 'Nancy Boy' was used to mock men who did not conform to traditional masculine norms. Over the decades, this term has been reclaimed by the LGBTQ+ community, transforming into a badge of pride and a symbol of resistance against gender stereotypes.

The print itself captures this spirit of defiance and reclamation. It features a character inspired by the burlesque tradition, embodying both the historical connotations and the contemporary celebration of the term. The artwork is meticulously crafted, using fine linocut techniques on high-quality Rising Stonehenge Paper (250 gsm) with deckled edges. The use of SpeedBall Professional Block-Printing Ink ensures the vibrancy and longevity of the colours.

This piece is not just an artistic creation; it is a tribute to the resilience and evolution of queer language and identity. With its rich historical context and striking visual appeal, "Nancy Boy" offers a compelling narrative, making it a significant acquisition for art collectors and a meaningful piece for those connected to LGBTQ+ history.

Each print in this limited edition of 50 prints is signed, dated, and numbered in pencil by the artist, accompanied by an elegant certificate of authenticity adorned with a Queero Gear wax seal. Please note that since each print features a unique edition number, the number on your print may differ from the one displayed in the product photographs.

The entire process of creating the linocut, from design and drawing to carving and printing, is performed by hand by the artist. This results in a truly one-of-a-kind piece, with subtle variations that highlight the charm and authenticity of handmade art. These differences and imperfections are not flaws, but rather an inevitable outcome of the handmade process.

Shipping: Your unframed print will be securely packaged in an acid-free, board-backed cellophane sleeve and dispatched within 3-5 business days. Prints are sent in a rigid mailer with tracked shipping via Sendle (Domestic & USA) or Canada Post (International).
