Works by Paul Newboult

Erotica // Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Paul Newboult's digital illustrations are steamy portraits of male desire. He is based in Manchester, UK. 'My expression is one of geometric shapes, lines and limited colours. Bright and vivid almost glowing on a desaturated backdrop. A place where sinister but friendly characters experiment with angles and balance to form compositions that provoke emotion and inspire thought. Shocking and surprising interactions occur through mixed media, textures and processes. What is real and what is illusion?'

Pitilli has a knack for capturing quietly intimate moments involving voluptuous ladies, more recently with a set his very own pinup inspired illustrations. In his own words- ''My goal with these is to hopefully go slightly beyond just a drawing of a pretty girl. I hope to interject some of my own personal experiences and inspirations which may possibly contribute to an underlying narrative, however vague it might be.''

Sergio Lopez's Painted Roses

Erotica // Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Sergio Lopez's 'Painted Roses' series overlays damask floral prints onto the female body, itself often doubled and overlaid in multiple exposures upon itself. The results are a lovely delicate take on the traditional female nude. Lopez, born in 1983, is a graduate of the Academy of Art in San Francisco. The Golden Age illustrators, Bravura painters, contemporary artists, concept designers, graffiti writers, and photographers have been some of his strongest influences in his pursuit of painting. He continues to study by visiting museums and observing the Great Masters, which he strives to learn lessons of beauty from.
