Pop Art x Erotic Surrealism with John Wesley

Pop Art x Erotic Surrealism with John Wesley

Erotica // Wednesday, October 08, 2014
Born in 1928 in New York, artist John Wesley received his BFA from UCLA in 1950. Wesley's minimal range of colors and cartoon-like line work led him to be placed in the pop-art category in the 1960s. This series of works focuses on his subject's range of fleshy tones, again keeping a simple color palate of complimentary blue and yellow backgrounds. We found a great description of Wesley as a Pop Artist and Erotic Surrealist. We can go with that.

New Zealand's Kelly Thompson has made a few appearances on our site, but when we were looking back through the Purple Book, we caught wind of Kelly again and really enjoyed her slightly erotic, fashion-eque illustrations and fine art work. She was born in Rotorua, New Zealand and lived in Wellington for 10 years before moving to Melbourne where she is currently based.

Erotica // Monday, October 06, 2014
Well, well, this is a bit fun. Erotic-themed Baron Magazine had photographers Blommers & Schum do a bit of mirror imaging with males and females for this really interesting and mindbending shoot. Girls who do boys like their girls... oh you get it.

The Juxtapoz staff has really loved the photography work of Amanda Charchian ever since we first saw it. There is a great blend of naturalism, surrealism, and a blend of fashion and fine art photography in each composition. Some of her subtle nude shots are plain outstanding.

SUZANNAH SINCLAIR "Nature Nudes and Interiors" @ Samsøñ, Boston

Erotica // Friday, September 12, 2014
One of Juxtapoz' favorite artists, Suzannah Sinclair, just opened a new series of works at Samsøñ in Boston, Mass, "Nature Nudes and Interiors." We have always loved the SInclair's almost throwback style of watercolor and pencil drawings, but the addition of the nature and interior works, juxtaposed with the nostalgic nudes, makes for a compelling series that we wish we could make it out to Boston to check out.
