Shary Boyle

Drawings, paintings, sculptures, projections and illustrations, even if it is sexy, or about sex, there is something very uncomforting about Shary Boyle’s surreal artwork.

Lovelines

Posted in Web-based by sexinart

Lovelines

Lovelines is an exploration of human desire. Through large scale blog analysis, the project illuminates the topography of the emotional landscape between love and hate, as experienced by countless normal humans keeping personal online journals.

Using a data collection engine, Lovelines examines thousands of blogs every few minutes to find expressions of love and hate, posted by all manner of people. When it can, Lovelines identifies and saves the age, gender, and geographical location of the person who wrote the post, and then presents that information along with the post. The entries range from frivolous to profound, offering a glimpse into the hearts and minds of people blogging about their wants and needs.

Click here to launch Lovelines.

The creators, Jonathan Harris & Sepandar Kamvar, are also the geniuses behind: 10×10, WordCount( ), Phylotaxis, justcurio.us and most recently We Feel Fine.

Nice… Check out some of Robert Laliberte’s diverse and quirky work.

Of special interest to us at Sex in Art, are his photographs of naked men, in “which the male body is artfully sculpted with light”. Plenty of Greek God-like physiques here.

Alberto Vargas

Posted in Fine Art, Illustration, Print by sexinart

Varga

When I was a naughty little kid, I used to often take a sneek peek at a book full of nudes that was hiding in my parent’s bedroom. It was a Playboy book of illustrated nudes by Alberto Vargas (I still have it today!!!).

Alberto Vargas was born in Arequipa, Peru, in 1896 (he passed away in 1982). His name has become synonymous with pin-up girls. Esquire magazine made him famous and later in his life, Vargas (who signed his work “Varga”) was signed up by Mr Playboy himself, Hugh Hefner. His regular Playboy slot in the 1960s and ’70s elevated Vargas to the legend he is today.

Check out Varga works here, here and some essays here. Also research George Petty, the man who inspired Vargas. He’s perhaps most famous for painting the girl on the Memphis Belle.

Hajime Sorayama

Hajime Sorayama

Hajime Sorayama is sometimes described as an imaginative modern day Vargas. He’s famous for his “Sexy Robot” series (which amazingly dates all the way back to 1979) but he’s got so much more highly detailed erotic airbrush work under his belt. Click here for his official Japanese site, and here for his English site, unfortunately neither of them have extensive gallery sections but doing a quick search using your fave search engine should reveal many Sorayama fan sites link this one for example.

Mexican Illustrator and Artist Armando Huerta, has a thing for wild women. His trademark “Better Nasty than Sexy” gives you a pretty good indication of the type of imagery you’ll see on his site. Hey, with the work he’s producing it’s a pretty good motto to go by.

A distinctive named guy with a distinctively apt style. Loic’s photographic online portfolio features some very hot imagery with dark undertones. Scantily dressed ladies in various forms of distress to clean portraiture of models with distracting makeup and electrical devices.

Phillip Toledano

Phillip Toledano’s work is refreshingly witty. Got to love an artist who values concepts as well as style. Whilst his personal site is very pretty to look at, I found it much easier navigating through his work on the Art Department web site.

Sexart by Mister

R.Crumb meet Cezanne? Known only as Mister, this guy (I assume!) from Nashville Tennessee creates paintings inspired by pornography and wishes to lift the curtains between classical figure painting, avant-guard expressionism, erotica, and raw stag!

Shunga

Bob Kessel

Shunga literally translates from Japanese to English as “images of spring.” Spring being the time of recreation, procreation and, well, the time that inspires man and woman to have sex!!!

Shunga’s nothing new (in fact it’s ancient!), these hardcore artworks were amazingly produced between the sixteenth and nineteenth century. Click here to read up on Shunga according to Wikipedia and be sure to check out Bob Kessel’s excellent modern interpretation of Shunga on his site (via Sexoteric).
