A Conversation with Olivia De Berardinis

It's no secret that perhaps the most intriguing and appealing of all visible, physical elements is that of the female form. That which simply occurs naturally can often be found as the most desired, seductive and inspiring being.

We have been scheduling a story with Todd for a bit now, and after the VMAs with the Miley bears, and another year where his exhibitions seems to get more and more stunning, we thought it was time to send contributing editor Joey Garfield out to NYC to catch up with REAS about pirates, girls, Mileys, vandals, and the evolution of his craft.

Dita Von Teese by Olivia De Berardinis

Erotica // Monday, April 02, 2012
'I am a painter of women, sexualized, surreal women. People always ask me how I got into this business. What they really want to know is why I am such an anomaly, which I'm not. Men admire imagery of women and women admire imagery of women- from religious iconography to pop culture stars... Over the years, many women have come up to me and told me about their drawings of women and the mixed reactions they get. I think it's strange that women aren't known for this genre, since it is ours to know.'
