ARTIST: JUSTIN CORRIVEAU (AKA @ANXIETYDREAMS)

Introducing Justin Corriveau – a visual artist born in Beverly, Massachusetts in the United States, and currently living and working in Queens, NY.

Corriveau’s work, through photography, digital collage, and zine making, uses dark humor to deal with themes of fear, anxiety, depression, insecurity, body image, and low self worth stemming largely from growing up gay in a homophobic society.

This latest series of photo portraits using classic photography backdrops and costumes, and shot during the COVID-19 pandemic, builds on his usual themes, while also exploring and poking fun at the artist’s own internalized homophobia and fear of effeminacy, fear of aging, and being alone.
