Style Maven. Movement Artist. Nightlife Personality.
Aquarius Funkk is a performance artist, model and makeup artist currently residing part time in San Miguel De Allende, Mexico. She honed her style and developed as an art model & movement artist in the small city of Portland, ME. Her body of work includes everything from event production, hosting, & stage managing, to art direction, hair & makeup, costume design & styling.
Aquarius has performed at Maine venues such as Portland House of Music and Events, The State Theatre, Port City Music Hall, Geno's Rock Club, St. Lawrence Arts, Mayo Street Arts, Empire, and Flask, as well as various festivals, street performances and private events throughout the Northeast US.
Aquarius is influenced by icons such as Grace Jones, Chaka Kahn, Donna Summer, Prince, Sylvester, Leigh Bowery, RuPaul, and Whitney Houston, to name only a few. The exploration of queerness, sexuality, being a person of color, and living outside of the binary are main themes in her performances. She pulls inspiration from a variety of modern and traditional styles of dance, black music & culture, the underground dance movements of vogue and house, and the current movement of queer performance and nightlife entertainment.
Currently, Miss Funkk is in residency at San Miguel De Allende's newest nightclub, Plata. The club features dance & performance, live music, DJ's and producers, drag shows, film screenings, fashion shows, and art installations. Most recently, Aquarius has performed with performance art troupe La Pocha Nostra, as well as been featured in This: Travel & Style and Fang magazines.
