Jeremy Novy (San Francisco) has utilized the street art form to explore social and political issues. He has become famous in San Francisco, as well as other cities, for his stencil work of swarms of koi fish on sidewalks. But Novy has a greater mission: to make queer-oriented street art and artists more visible. He has been hailed as a pioneer of queer street art has made San Francisco his artistic playground with stencils not only of koi fish, but drag queens, care bears, and even hunky shirtless men on billboards. "Queer street art has always been an oppressed art form," he says. "We are not taggers. We're street artists. This is for social change. It's about doing something better."
Jeremy has an associate’s degree in graphic design and a BFA in photography from the Pecks School of the Arts. He has exhibited his work throughout the United States.
