Introducing Paris (France) based artist called Password Yeltes.  Yeltes says that “My work as an artist is about finding your identity as a queer person and assume yourself truly.  It represents all my thoughts about my reflection with the queer atmosphere and all the situations that come with it.”  Yeltes’s works cover the mediums of drawing and painting.

Artist Statement

.

The mechanics of society lead us towards the standardisation of our deepest selves, rendering us sometimes unquestioning and insipid.

Human beings thus, relegated to simple consumer goods, even reduced to machines, often only use words and actions as ruses in order to manipulate or trap one another.

My artwork is an odyssey which allows me to enjoy playing with these codes in order to corrupt them as best I can.

The fruit of my artistic research brings to the fore this posturing and fakery within my unstable and phantasmagorical world.
