Nico (they/them) is a neurodivergent, recovering community organizer. They are a fat painter, maker, healer, lover, sick, queer and gender variant creature being. Some pronouns you can use are he/her/they, elle/ella/el and soft papi. They were born on Lenapehoking land, with roots in the west side of Borikén too. Raised by their mother and their mother, red dirt, sweet water, and bodegas. Part of their sacred work is also about liberating our pleasure and desire. Experiencing, unveiling, indulging them. Understanding how they’ve been weaponized against us through their relationship to violence. It’s about exploring what safety, care and wellness feel like when we ground our pleasure and desire in abundance, consent, interdependence, autonomy, access, and love without ownership. Their visual art explores what these worlds look and feel like. Their political work embodies them through practice, studying, lots of messing up, loving, and humbly committing to the unfolding.
