Lorenzo has been featured in exhibitions in Boston, New York City, and Lima, Peru. He explores the intersections of the Dominican diaspora, queerness, and BDSM through his photographic work, while also exploring and analyzing the meaning behind being a product of the legacies of colonialism.
Attending the Art Students League since he was a child, Lorenzo returned to the League during his Sophomore year in High School after much improvement and encouragement from art teachers. The Kamen Scholarship allowed Lorenzo to explore the theme of drawing from life which served as a major practice for young Lorenzo.
“While I haven’t created consistent work in over four years, I’m continuously analyzing and exploring what it means to be a product of the legacies of colonialism and the dystopia that we call American. I live and navigate within the intersections of the Dominican diaspora, queerness, and BDSM/Leather Culture, all three of which (in one way or another) serve as vehicles for solace and devices to interpret my traumas.”— Kirk Lorenzo
