More Than a Friend

Posted in Fine Art, Illustration by sexinart

mtaf.jpg

More Than a Friend describes a relationship between Montreal based visual artists Krista Bursey and Jason Wasserman who create paintings and illustrations in collaboration at every step of the artistic process, conceiving all the ideas together, and then executing different areas of the surface, often painting or drawing over each others work.

Pierre Radisic

pierre.jpg

Some interesting work by French Photographer Pierre Radisic. Each piece is made of 6 black and white photographs which are arranged together in order to create interesting compositions. Some of it’s a little hardcore but most of the compositions are beautiful and they really capture intimate moments. (via).

Musa

Posted in Photography, Print by sexinart

muse4.jpg

The female form has been the most widely photographed subject since the invention of the camera. Musa (Muse in Spanish) is a book released by new publisher Macula de Plata which focusses on six photographers who talk about their lives, work and what inspires them (always a fascinating and inspiring topic). The book explors the photographer-model relationship through interviews with acclaimed practitioners of erotic and nude photography such as Luis Durante (Spain), Roy Stuart (France), Charlie Roff (England), Jock Sturges (United States), Vlastimil Kula (Czech Republic) and Tony Keeler (Spain).

More words and less pictures (99 pages with 12 black-and-white photos) in both English and Spanish, one for the bedside table. More info here.

Biorequiem

Posted in Fine Art, Photography by sexinart

Untitled-14.jpg

“Zoetica” (as she refers to herself on her bio page) is the gothic brainchild behind Biorequiem. This website showcases her paintings and photographs (including some very nice punky self portraits). Her artwork is quite intriguing, she has strayed into the macabre which you’ll see in the gallery titled 2002 to Present. I found some of her imagery somewhat disturbing, but I couldn’t pull myself away.

Cool name, Cool Photography, Cool art… She hits all my buttons with her retro pop art, pill poppin’ pieces… But then i’m a bit of a pop art freak. :) Nubby Twiglet is the online name for Shauna, of Portland, Oregon. Her work is sharp, sleek, and deliciously red. Her site also links to her online diary, which is well worth a browse.

I struggled to find anything out about this cool school illustrator, all i know is that they live in Belgium and have a cat called Moby. Thanks to “on-my-desk” blogspot. :) Interesting work, very ecclectic.

Afternoon2.jpg

I love Ian Haig’s work, it kinda makes me feel uneasy, but warm and fuzzy at the same time, and I can’t quite pinpoint why. He works in a bunch of different mediums from sculpture to painting and there are a couple of little animations that are worth a gander on his site as well.

Annie Sprinkle

Untitled-12.jpg

I found Annie’s site so informative. :) Its an awesome read. Annie Sprinkle is a self proclaimed “prostitute/porn star turned performance artist/sexologist”. Having passionately researched and explored sexuality for thirty years. She creates her own unique sex films, photographic work, and teaches workshops and college lectures.
There’s heaps of interesting stuff to check out on her site, well worth a browse.

Sexy Latex is a classy little Swedish blog which focusses on promoting latex and fetish photography. Definitely worth checking out whether you’re into latex or not.

A little perverse, a little shocking, check out the colourful work of Australian post-pop artist Arnie Arnold who’s also the director, curator and founder of blank_space Gallery in Sydney.

Trevor Brown

Posted in Fine Art, Illustration by sexinart

babyart.jpg

Great work by London born artist Trevor Brown. His cute and nasty work depicts children and dolls in adult situations which could be considered as being quite dangerous (we’ll leave it up to you to decide). Whichever way you look at his work, whether you try to read all sorts of deep insightful implications into it, or merely view it as eye candy, we’re sure you’ll agree that Trevor’s very talented at what he does.

Steven Miller

Steven Miller is a stunning photographer with a refreshing sense of humour, his bunny series is well worth a gander, as is his “milky” series. Technically stunning, and highly humorous. His website is also very nicely set out and showcases his work beautifully.

Juul de Vries

Juul de Vries is a Dutch photographer who creates some very special photomontages. I love how his photographs are colour graded, his prints utilise transparent retouching dyes which result in images with an aura of the unreal. (via).

Todd Kurtzmann

kurtzmann.jpg

Coining a new style: PERSPECTVIST – Todd Kurtzmann produces some very original and intriguing pieces. He makes small scale sculptures to look as if they were hundreds of feet in size, or alternatively as if they were normal size figures viewed by someone very tiny.
Magical and refreshing, we are sure you will be intrigued by his work.

Drub

Posted in Illustration by sexinart

drub.jpg

OK, this one’s a bit more hardcore than usual, be prepared to check out skin heads, skater boys, and punks all enjoying male company in intimate ways. This is in your face pin up art, and personally, I totally dig Drub’s work, heaps of colour and humour. It’s very out there and comical at the same time, but it aint going to be everyone’s cup of tea.

Michael Manning

Posted in Illustration by sexinart

manning.jpg

Thank you Mister Manning… Michael Manning is an artist in the US, who has created a series of graphic novels based around the Spider Garden. It is described as the “home of Shaalis the Sacred Androgyne and the Metal Spider Clan – an organic self-sustaining environment in which erotic experimentation is raised to an artistic level and the interplay of dominance and submission brings a new kind of freedom…”

Some of Michael’s artwork from the novels can be viewed on this site, along with his designs for tattoos, costume design and photography. His work is nothing short of amazing, inspired by Japanese animation, fairy tale book illustartion, American and European comix and mythology of many cultures. We hope you enjoy his work as much as we did at Sex in Art.

Kiriko Moth

Kiriko.jpg

Total respect to Kiriko Moth, a fantastic female artist with beautiful beautiful work. With Japanese overtones and pieces that remind me of stain glass windows i’ve seen in my childhood, she’s grabbed me through from her stylised work. Kiriko refers to her art:

“I don’t believe my art has a message.

I prefer the aesthetics; I like to create works that are pleasing to look at. Maybe I have nothing more to say than that.”

We’ll let her work speak for itself.

Torkil Gudnason

torkil1.jpg

“Originally from Denmark, Torkil Gudnason approaches photography with a no-nonsense, Scandanavian sensibility. When asked to list three things he can’t live without as a photographer, his answer is appropriately succinct: light light light.”

Love his work, sexually charged and his site’s a pleasure to use too.

Too cool for school. Each issue of Monster Children Magazine down in Australia explores the best of surf, skate, snow, art, photography, design. The image above was from a Calendar they produced using some damn fine ladies from Chic models and artwork from Jonathan Zawada. Be sure to grab one in their shop.

I struggled to find any information about Craig Mahood. His website showcases three of his sculpture pieces that I found extremely intriguing. The urinal in particular was very interesting indeed. We’ll endeavour to find out more and post on him again when we have further information.

J.K. Potter

Jeffrey K. Potter creates disturbing, innovative artwork has been a pervasive presence in modern fantasy for over twenty years, winning numerous awards and gracing the covers of countless magazines and books. What’s perhaps more amazing is that all of his pieces use photographic and darkroom techniques only.

Vincent Stephens

Posted in Illustration by sexinart

Untitled-11.jpg

Most commonly reviewed as a Pinup Illustrator/artist, Vincent does some very funky, very sexy stuff. His paintings are very emotive and remind me of old school 70s iconic images. His site Ram Star Visuals isn’t too neatly set out, but we can forgive him as it’s not his craft.
