Nic Prior,

an ever changing icon, an artist, a triple threat, a troublemaker, a partner in crime, a best friend.... They came to town and we took some pictures. I just wanted bring on here one of my friends who truly inspires me day in and out from the day we met. Continually in awe of your growth of presence and power of voice from the stage to the streets. 

Forever lovin' you. 

Who inspires you? My friends and peers. I go to CalArts and every day I am surrounded by incredible Artists who have huge and generous hearts and minds, and who inspire me every day with their passion and drive.

Star sign? I'm a Leo child through and through. But it warrants mentioning that my Moon, Rising and dominant sign are Capricorn.

Favorite quote? “I fink u freeky and I like u a lot” - Yolandi Visser

Biggest challenges you've faced? Coming out as trans would definitely be one. Moving country. Becoming myself.

Biggest difference from US to AUS? Excess and access. I swear to god, who needs a 2 Litre bottle of Vodka (as I've found out, I do), and huge cans of Beer (also me). And the fact that you can go to one store and get all the essentials - groceries, deli food, cleaning supplies (and heavy duty shit at that) and a box of Franzia is really quite wild.

What's your greatest fear? I think my greatest fear is probably not being loved.

 

Favorite piece of artwork? There are so many, but I think one of my favourite pieces would be Marina Abramovic’s Lips of Thomas. Even though Abramovic is definitely problematic, the work itself was really fantastic.

What do you want people to know? I'm trans non-binary, my pronouns are they/them/their, and yes it is important.

Future plans? Make art, fall in love, move somewhere new, find happiness, peace and myself.
