Queezy is a multidisciplinary artist bridging the intersections of fine art, fashion, and performance. From printmaking and videography to drag performances and DJ sets, QUEEZY creates immersive worlds, where fantasy meets the radical subversion of the status quo. At once theatrical and personal, Heneke’s works upend and expand what it means to be queer and coloured in South Africa, subverting constructions of masculinity, sexuality, and corporeality. Salient themes of gendered norms and identity politics are met with craftsmanship and authenticity, generating artworks which are as aesthetically engaging as they are socially engaged. Ultimately, Queezy aims to create interactive experiences where normativity gives way to spaces for protest, empowerment, and celebration. Queezy attended Belgravia art school where they received training in pottery, painting, sculpture, and graphic design. After high school, they attended Cape Peninsula University of Technology, where they were awarded a BTech in Fashion Design with a distinction in specialized clothing technology.
Queezy has created performances for Gallery MOMO, World Art Gallery, Goodman Gallery, Zeitz MOCAA and Norval Foundation.
Recently the University of Cape Town has acquired Queezys work “Thandi” (Digital Collage print) for their permanent archive which is showcased in the Bremner Building foyer.
