Underwater Nude Rock Quarry Series

Erotica // Friday, April 13, 2012
'Photography holds all the intrinsic values of all the other arts; but it is the foundation of the origins of existence. My creations are the exploration of my inner facilities; in the pursuit of contemporary knowledge expressing “original thoughts”. States Neil Craver "Nothing can exist without the photon, and every aspect is controlled by it’s usage" Neil Craver's collection of Underwater Nude Rock Quarry shots are one of my all time favorites.

Zombie Sexocalypse

Erotica // Thursday, April 12, 2012
In the bizarre and macabre heavy metal world of illustrator Mark Riddick, naked zombie chicks are happily and graphically disemboweled by their rotting, skeletal boyfriends, and some even give birth to monstrous undead babies in pools of festering entrails and melted skin. As viscerally horrifying as this may seem, Riddick's seriously hardcore and awesomely gruesome illustrations are chock full of self-deprecating humor that borders on the absurd.

Wild Child

Erotica // Thursday, April 12, 2012
Internationally renowned photographer Corwin Prescott frames the female figure like no other, composing painterly images that are both erotically-charged and sublimely surreal. In his series "Into the Wild," Prescott contrasts the fleshy curves and smooth skin of his models against natural forms, allowing them to both stand apart from their surroundings as well as whole-heartedly embrace their deep-seated animal instincts.

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.

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.
