Born in 1986 in Brazil, Zee Giesbrecht (he/they) is a queer artist currently residing in Hingham, Massachusetts. Working primarily with art that concerns LGBTQIA+ body identity, intimate relationships and queer visibility. His works aim to explore these themes through an emotional representation of identities that are in movement, always in constant construction and deconstruction. To express that idea, he tends to choose an intersection of liquid and dry mediums: bright ever-flowing watercolors juxtaposed with solid charcoal presented in fast, rough, disconnected lines.
Zee is a graduate of the Faculty of Fine Arts of The University of Lisbon. He has exhibited internationally in Portugal and Brazil, at the MIS (Museu da Imagem e do Som) and locally at the MFA for the "Portraits of Leadership: Responses to the Obama Portraits" exhibit. He is a Gallery Artist member of both the South Shore Art Center and Gallery Nantasket - Hull Artists.
