Hubert de Lartigue currently lives and works in Vitry-sur-Seine near Paris. His newest work is super sensual airbrush. He says, “What'smore anonymous than a detail? What could be more intimate, too? For the perspective of the viewer on such details is only possible with very close proximity, the distance at which it is possible to perceive the scent of the other…”

We came across these paintings this morning of Gustavo Silva Nuñez, a Venezuelan artist who has a great skill of capturing subjects as they swim or are submerged underwater in a series of paintings. One of the best things we see in these paintings is the way he captures the surface of the water. Well done.
Erotica // Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Not all of these paintings are in the "erotic" category, but most of them are of the NSFW work persuasion, and most of these paintings by Hubert de Lartigue are rendered beautifully. From full nudes, to an interest in belly buttons, to some very nice obsessios with tongues, de Lartigue uses acrylic on canvas for all these works.

And to think, the only Dirk we knew works in Dallas. We ran across these beautiful drawings by Dirk Dzimirsky last night, and as much as we love how he composes faces, we love the way he captures water and movement around the subject's face.

New York-based artist Suzanne Berry is a mostly self-taught artist who paints large realistic-looking bugs on canvases up to 24x36 inches. The large format of her painting allows viewers to see the detail with which she paints the crawly creatures.

Fábio Magalhães works with self-reference painting. Metaphorically connecting images of his own body, feelings and banal situations, Magalhães aims at pointing out conditions inconceivable to be portrayed but through artifices and distortions of reality. As for this, his art pieces are the result of a modus operandi that makes part of the photographic universe and results in a kind of parallel reality, materialized in the universe of painting.

If you have followed the Juxtapoz site over the past few years, you would know that we are in a resurgence of hyperrealistic painters making fantastic work. So we might as well look at one of the great hyperrealistic painters of the past 50 years, with Swiss painter Franz Gertsch having a museum show at the Abattoirs Museum in Toulouse, France through the end of August 2014. If you remember, Gertsch had a fantastic series of paintings of Patti Smith completed in the 1970s that have been shown around the world and at Gagosian Gallery.
