Hi,

This is one passion that I have, Pin Ups. the first two photos are from finish works made by me and the others are my future works in this series. All patterns were made by me, based on photos that I find in the net.

SASimth I use GIMP 2 to do all my patterns, use sometimes Photoshop for the edition of the images, removing backgroud etc…

Censoring Art is never in the best interest of free society . Freedom of speech soon follows . History shows us this time and again . Some may say that certain Art is not to their taste, and choose not view it ,read it , hear it,act it,or feel it. This is a personal freedom also, so that we may live with dignity and be happy ; and have a voice .

How does Human sexuality relate to Art ? Human sexuality relates to everything Human. Does any given image of a man or woman tend to objectify them ?. As an artist i have no problem objectifying anything ;and the inverse is true . Is Human sexuality a great inspiration and motivation for creating the arts ? Its’s the process of creation of life itself that as a species consumes us , and that we can not separate from our will to survive . We celebrate it in many ways.

When i was twelve years of age i attended an exhibition of some of August Rodin’s bronzes. There was a very large female torso that was so exquisite that it took my breath away. As my group moved on, i lingered there and could not believe i stood so near such a work of art. No ropes were separating us. I knew if i passed up the chance i might not find this opportunity again. I looked around shyly , Trying to overcome the embarrassment of what i considered . I stepped forward and slowly began to run my hands along the curves of the form, walking around it as i did so , Trying to ignore the people that were staring at me . No one asked me to stop this activity, i wanted to ‘will’ my fingers and palms to remember everything . It was a very solemn and enlightening moment for a young artist .
