This photoseries inspired by bees and beekeepers explores the darker fringes of the insect world, combining the eroticism of the female body with beekeeping accoutrements.

REEG: "Self-Suck"

Erotica // Tuesday, August 05, 2014
British artist Ray Edwards AKA "REEG" presents a series of drawins reminiscent of 2D animations featuring candy-colored haird girls sucking their own toes. Edward's illsutrations are both classically cheeky and sexually provocative, a combination that delights the inner child as much as the seasoned adult. Pure, clean fun-- maybe not totally clean, but who wants totally clean?

Gritty Sexuality from Bom.K

Erotica // Tuesday, August 05, 2014
Born in Paris in the 70's, Bom.K discovered graffiti during his youth in the suburbs, then formed the Da Mental Vaporz crew in 1999 which continues to push the esthetical boundaries of graffiti to this day. Bom.K's singularly virtuosic grasp on the spraycan as a tool for wicked, grounded rendering has served him well. These works represent some of his erotic oeuvre, presenting the body in a gruesome and twisted vision reminiscent of artists like Wayshak and Jhonen Vasquez. Beautiful, bizarre work.
