Novy keeps a studio in the Bayview district that is covered in stencil work. Although his fish are well-known by citizens of San Francisco who don't even know his name, the stencil work in his studio predominantly features men as subjects, as Nova is first and foremost a "Queer street artist".
"Queer street art has always been an oppressed art form. We are not taggers. We're street artists. This is for social change. It's about doing something better." - Jeremy Novy
