Trevor Castor (He/Him)
Trevor David is an up-and-coming artist and fearless queer activist who uses his art as a powerful tool to raise awareness about mental health issues and to promote body positivity. Born and raised in rural Michigan, Trevor’s journey has been shaped by the challenges of growing up gay in a conservative community. Throughout his life, he has experienced mental illness, both before and after coming out.
Despite the obstacles he faced, Trevor found solace and self-expression through art. Inspired by his family of creatives and guided by his own experimentation, Trevor has developed a unique artistic style that captures the incredible beauty and sensuality in what society may consider unconventional. His artwork combines bold colors, striking contrasts, and various textures and techniques, creating pieces that speak in the universal languages of both the abstract and the human form.
Using mixed media, Trevor aims to shed light on pressing societal issues such as body positivity, anxiety, depression, and suicide, with a particular focus on their impact on men and the queer community. Through his art, he confronts and challenges stigmatized topics that many people prefer to avoid or even ignore. By presenting these issues in a visually compelling and thought-provoking way, Trevor invites viewers to engage in conversations about these often-taboo subjects, fostering understanding and empathy.
Trevor’s art serves as a platform for activism and social justice, as he strives to create a world where everyone can feel accepted and valued for who they are. He hopes that through his art, he can not only empower individuals to embrace their own bodies and minds, but also inspire a larger collective change to create a more inclusive and compassionate society.
By sharing his personal experiences and using his artistic talents, Trevor invites us all to challenge conventional notions of beauty and embrace the diversity and complexity of the human experience.
