San Francisco artist and drag queen Casey Trujillo – AKA Cassidy LeBlanc – has set the internet ablaze with an iconic transformation… into hand sanitiser. Yes, one of the globe’s most sought-after resources, and something I’ve failed to find at several stores over the past couple weeks. Panic buying aside, this look is, hands-down, a piece of art. (See what I did there? I’m sorry. I’ll let myself out.)
Trujillo posted the transformation a few days ago, alongside the caption “When in hell, use Purell.”
*Chef’s kiss* Superb.
“At this time we’re all processing not only the coronavirus but also the difficult ripple it has upon our friends, family and community,” the artist told Queerty.
“By painting Purell, it’s my goal is to share the silver lining of humour and levity in a moment of shadow. Laughter is the best medicine, and I want people to remember to not take life so seriously! No matter the circumstance, we can always shift our perspective into a place of light and love.”
