Erotic art has a long and distinguished, if controversial, tradition in the history of modern art. Arguably, eroticism in art brings us closer to our humanity, yet there are few genres in the arts that have been as under-represented and unjustly maligned as expressions of what we, in all our rich diversity, find erotic.
Art Erotica is a new event in the London art calendar that will present a long- overdue, high-profile opportunity to exhibit for artists producing work in the erotic genre. Brought to you by the organizers of the Cork Street Open Exhibition – a respected international event, founded four years ago – Art Erotica will benefit a selected charity and will be juried, with submitted work carefully and rigorously chosen for exhibition by a panel drawn from leading figures in the UK art world.
The diverse Exhibition will span most mediums, including painting, photography, digital art, sculpture, drawing, mixed media construction and original prints by emerging and established artists from around the world. Photographs by American photographer James Armstrong, and drawings by internationally acclaimed artist Jamil Nasqh, will be shown for the first time.
In addition to spectacular visual art we are happy to present talks and public readings by a stellar line-up of art historians, critics, philosophers and actors, all focused on the erotic theme.
We invite you to join us in January to explore, discover and discuss Art Erotica. The full events programme can be downloaded HERE
The Art Show 2009 is in its second edition welcoming important international galleries. Taking advantage of the excitement generated by the Film Festival, the Art Show 2009 aims to give the place of honour to current trends in the visual arts, with the “AVIFF” Art Video International Film Festival and the “Hopen” Art Master Piece, launched during the Fair.
The Poster Show was held in New York City on the 27th April 2009. The posters were sold in silent auction, and 100% of proceeds were donated to the Memorial Foundation’s Breast Cancer Center in efforts to raise cancer awareness in young women.
The show, created by longtime Soffer Collective art director Manny Prieres, features work by Perez, Whitney Biennial Winner Bert Rodriguez, myself and many others. To read the full Press Release CLICK HERE.
In collaboration with my NYC based Representative Artists and Creatives, I am entering a poster illustration for the 2009 Poster Show, organised jointly between The Soffer Collec+ive and Artists and Creatives, this event is 100% in aid of Charity, this year benefiting Breast Cancer Research.
The show will be staged initially in Fort Lauderdale at the Sailboat Bend Gallery on 19th February 2009 and subsequently in March 2009 in New York City (date, time and venue yet to be announced).
This is the first time in my career as a photographic artist that I have exhibited a digitally composed illustration. However, I may well produce others in the future, depending upon the success of this work.
