Bearskinofficial is a Thai digital artist based in Vancouver, Canada. Coming from a strict Thai family, creating gay art wasn’t something he was comfortable with for quite some time. 

Luckily for us this talented gentlemen (who prefers to remain anonymous) has been motivated to follow his own creative path by artists like Ego Rodriguez and members of Silverjow.

“Seeing such inspiring works of art gave me the courage to make my own creations that I’m proud of,” he says. “I never thought my work would be received so well. This support gives me the drive to push my own boundaries and challenge myself.”
