Ben Newman's Pony PlayErotica // Friday, 24 May 2013
"I like to put fun and filth into erotic art," says English illustrator Ben Newman. "My paintings are captured moments from ongoing stories, inviting the viewer to be emotionally drawn into the scene rather than observing dispassionately from a distance... My art celebrates women who embrace their sexuality and desires; these are no ethereal waifs but earthy and hungry creatures, eager for feeling and experience. They encourage viewers to connect with them, demanding attention. They whisper you closer and invite you to join them."
