The Bosom Ballet

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 23, 2012
'The Bosom Ballet is a performance in which I stretch, pinch, squeeze, twist, rock, roll, and jiggle my breasts to music, usually “The Blue Danube Waltz,” under a pink spotlight. I wear opera-length black gloves and a tutu. Over the years I have also done various other styles of bosom dance. There was the Bosom Tap Dance, which I performed in a nightclub off Broadway...'

Parra x Kidrobot "Pierced" Vinyl sculpture

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 22, 2012
“As he pierces her with brutal force” is no understatement with Dutch artist Parra’s depiction of a harsh necking in his first collaboration with pop art brand Kidrobot. The 10-inch vinyl sculpture is a dramatization of eroticism and dominance, with beaked creatures pecking away at each other in a menagerie gloss and matte. The forceful embrace is an ode to romance novel covers that even Fabio might be turned on by depending on what angle he views it from.
