Sex, Humor and Porous Walker

Erotica // Wednesday, April 11, 2012
Jimmy DiMarcellis (aka Porous Walker) is a Napa, CA based artist who specializes in the absurd and often times the sexually bizarre. Jimmy’s hilarious drawings, creative sculptures and installations remind us that humor is the highest art- and next to sex, the most widely received and appreciated form of expression. The abstract and non-sensical illustrations of Walker are like comic-strips for the sexually mature (or immature) comic art enthusiast in all of us.

GET READY, JUNGLE HEAT at Beach London

Erotica // Wednesday, April 11, 2012
With “GET READY, JUNGLE HEAT.”, Christopher Norris and Steak Mtn. aim to aggressively explore the role of the mouth in human sexuality; correlating the moist humidity of men and women’s mouths to that of the wet heat of a jungle. Norris/Steak delicately abstract their compositions, softening the seamy subject matter for the viewers’ gaze, coaxing them to examine in detail something that would perhaps normally make them uncomfortable.

Kira Leigh's Erotic Grotesque

Erotica // Wednesday, April 11, 2012
Kira Leigh is a Boston based artist and illustrator who's work 'investigates issues of identity in the world and of the self.' She states 'Co-morbidity, issues of depression, feminism, body dysmorphia and self-harm are some topics of interest that I pursue. I often use systems of gaming and pop culture references to create an identifiable, often spontaneous, visual vocabulary...'

Keith P. Rein (The P is for Penis) (NSFW)

Erotica // Wednesday, April 11, 2012
Illustrator and designer Keith P. Rein, aka The P is for Penis, received his BFA from the University of Georgia in 2006 with a focus in photography. On the creation of his rather unique and titillating studio name, Rein says: "My wife and I were brainstorming a moniker for my sexy work... I've always signed my work with my middle initial, and out of the blue she chuckles 'Keith P. Rein - the P is for penis. And now it's stuck (but not in a bad way)."

Bei Badgirl

Erotica // Tuesday, April 10, 2012
It's hard to tell if it's a case of "art reflects life" or "life reflects art" with Australian artist Bei Badgirl, her acrylic paintings of buxom mermaids and lingerie-clad girls totally echoing her pop personality and aesthetic: bubbly and hyper-feminine, with a hint of erotic sass. Her sexy/cute handy work will be showing at Hasbro's "My Little Pony Project 2012" exhibit, opening May 5th at Toy Art Gallery in Los Angeles.

Fashion Fetish

Erotica // Tuesday, April 10, 2012
In conjunction with SHOWstudio Shop's 2012 exhibition "Selling Sex," SHOWstudio has commissioned a series of short films, performances, and multi-media pieces created entirely by women working in the fashion industry that explore the often contentious and provocative fusion of fashion and fetish. The first film in this series, "Fuck Me," is directed by Ruth Hogben and features model Karlie Kloss.

Javier Godoy

Erotica // Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Based in Murcia, Spain, artist Javier Godoy graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Carlos in Valencia with a degree in Fine Art. A self-professed perfectionist, Godoy is obsessed with every aspect of the art-making process from composition to finish. His tightly composed and loosely stylized images also posses a wickedly wry sense of humor (we're looking at you, pin-up wookie).  

Dreams of Grandeur

Erotica // Tuesday, April 10, 2012
The vast anonymity that certain artists hold can be quite maddening, especially if your desire is to understand their craft or read into their expression on a level deeper than the surface of the Internet (like for the purpose of a feature, ha!). Artist and illustrator 'Dreams of Grandeur' falls into that category, as a creative whom we know nothing about, other than that the complexity and appeal of their visual output is quite intriguing. Thank you...

Ryan Whittier Hale's Bodies

Erotica // Monday, April 09, 2012
The work of mixed-media artist Ryan Whittier Hale is futuristically dreamy, vividly lush and surreal. Ryan Hale is both a photographer and video artist, born 1985 in San Francisco, California. He received his BFA in Design and Technology at Parsons School of Design in New York and is currently living and workingin New York. I love the bizarre aesthetic he is pushing forward in this series of androgynous Body Harvests.
