Orlando Nude Nite Exhibition

I am delighted to announce that UV artwork will be included in the Orlando Nude Nite which will be held February 11-13 at 503 Brookhaven Dr. Orlando, FL 32803 USA. Nude Nite is the largest nude art event in the U.S.A. – a 3 night juried multi media art event celebrating the body beautiful. Held annually, the event displays hundreds of artist’s works in a warehouse-sized gallery setting. Nude Nite takes a different approach to the stereotypical “stuffy” art show by combining entertainment and art, helping to fulfil its simple mission: Introducing people to the world of art. Full details about the show can be found at www.nudeniteorlando.com

Robert Babylon – Erotic Artist of the Year – Awards Review

This Event Day was a busy and important date for The Guild at Beaumont Hall Studios as it saw the first of the JADE Erotic Artists Awards presented by Guild model Rebekka Raynor on behalf of the Editor of JADE magazine.

First the two worthy runners-up, photographer David Hare and artist Karen Middleton were invited to receive their framed certificates to loud applause from the audience of fellow members, visitors and guests. The winner of the 2009 award was then invited to the stage where photo artist Robert Babylon, dressed in black leather kilt, received his framed certificate and the specially commissioned white kneeling sculpture (created by Ken Clarke for JADE). Along with the very loud and continued applause as he was presented with the impressive and now much coveted award there were calls from the audience for a speech. Robert, in the finest tradition of award speeches, gave an emotional but genuine and heartfelt vote of thanks to his wife Caroline, who he said had supported him throughout his career and without whom he would not be where he was today. There was more applause as he left the stage a very proud and happy man, and a deserving winner of the first ever JADE Erotic Artist of the Year Award.

Erotic UV Images at ENLIGHTENMENT Exhibition

Here’s news of an exhibition featuring my images that’s closer to ‘home’ (for some of you at least)… in Milton Keynes. ENLIGHTENMENT is an exhibition of work and workshops by ’The Association of Erotic Artists’. This is your chance to see work by some of the world’s leading erotic artists.

Erotic Art Exhibition

’The Association of Erotic Artists’ is set to embark upon an evangelical mission of ENLIGHTENMENT of which this exhibition is but a start. We seek to challenge society’s bigoted and misguided opinions of the nature, relevance and standing of erotic art and make a stand against social, political and religious condemnation.

A range of my UV images will be on display both as limited edition fine-art prints and as projections.

JADE magazine’s Erotic Artist of the Year 2009

It is with great pride that I announce that I have been chosen as JADE magazine‘s Erotic Artist of the Year 2009. I will be the first ever recipient of the new JADE award – a specially commissioned white kneeling nude figure by leading master sculptor Ken Clarke – which will be presented at the Guild of Erotic Artists Event Day on 20th September at Beaumont Hall Studios, St Albans.

Erotic Artist of the Year Award
If any of you would like to pop along on the day it would be lovely to see you, you don’t have to be a member to attend and full details are available on the Guild’s website.

This month’s (August – Issue 57) Jade contains an article about the lovely model Capricorn Moon featuring several of my images and next month’s edition will contain a portfolio of my images.  Here’s what Jade magazine had to say about my work:

“We can think of no more deserving recipient of this year’s award than photo-artist Robert Babylon, whose work has developed and improved over the last few years and whose quality is always first class. His rich, artistic vision pushes at the boundaries of erotic art and explores the subject with a passion and skill which singles him out as a leader in the field, taking on new challenges and creating new works of art that set themselves apart from the mainstream. It is our hope that this award reflects the high regard in which this artist is held and that it will be just one of many he will receive throughout his career.”
