Violence and Sex: Kristians BrekteErotica // Wednesday, 01 May 2013
Everything about Kristians Brekte is provocative. A Latvian illustrator whose latest show depicts skull-faced girls engaged in explicit and often violent sexual activity, Brekte is unafraid to paint what will make people want to look away-- or, alternatively, they won't be able to look away at all. Brekte's website depicts the words "If you're reading this, after 1 minute you'll die" and "I'll wear your face like a mask." The violent, liquid effect of his paint is evocative of a variety of human fluids, and if you think these images are graphic you should check out his website. We absolutely love the in-your-face quality of Brekte's work and his persona.
