Selected Vaginal Davis Press

New Yorker, October 2017: "I found myself thrilling to rare examples of the aggressive affront that I had expected, such as a series of fantastically nasty small works by the reliably dazzling Los Angeles-born, Berlin-based, biracial, transgender artist and performer Vaginal Davis: abstract reliefs that suggest mangled faces, viscera, and genitalia, painted in a blood-red mixture of substances, including nail polish."

Here's what the press has to say about Ms. Davis:

"Vaginal Davis is the future of art" -- Artforum

"She's the punk rock Rupaul..." -- Paper

"One of the 100 most influential celebrities of the 90's" - Vanity Fair

"Vaginal Davis, grande dame of the LA drag and punk scene, has become a regular in the New York Times, receiving mention in the paper's year-old "Styles" section nearly as often as political analyst Norman Ornstein is quoted by the paper's Washington reporters." -- GQ

"Vaginal Davis represents now generation drag. She's kookier and naughtier than her cohorst RuPaul, Lypsinka and Charles Busch." -- New York Newsday
