Silky Shoemaker is a painter and performer from Central PA now living in San Francisco. She makes work that explores the absurdity and profundity of queer life in its many epic iterations.
Her work has been seen in such illustrious venues as ArtHouse Austin, the Warhol Museum, The Sculpture Center (Queens), the high schools of New Jersey, and most recently ArtYard’s new theatre space! She is one-third of the performance collective Shaboom! and also dances across the world with notorious post-gender punk Christeene. Silky is the founder of GAYBIGAYGAY Music Fest and once curated the world’s first Gay Wax Museum.
