Aurel Schmidt Mixes Body Parts and Produce

Erotica // Thursday, August 07, 2014
Aurel Schmidt is a provocative artist who created this series to compare body parts with different pieces of produce. We love the execution of these pieces-- Schmidt is clearly a very accomplished illustrator whose commitment to this tongue-in-cheek subject just makes the punchline all the better. Which one is your favorite?

Illustrations by Aurel Schmidt

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 30, 2013
We are thoroughly enjoying the illustrations of Aurel Schmidt this morning. Her intricately detailed drawings include objects and creatures such as flies, condoms, and cigarette butts that are pieced together to form larger figures. One such figure, the FlexMaster 3000 is a portrait of the Minotaur, the half-man, half-bull mythic creature who represents both creation and destruction.

Aurel Schmidt is an NYC-based artist whose highly detailed work assembles the darker elements of humanity and rearranges them in a disturbing yet humorous way. In her series "Maneater," Schmidt brings together pieces of street trash, such as cigarette butts, condoms, and discarded food, and transforms them into faces, landscapes, and bodies with bizarre erotic undertones.
