Just to let you know that I have a solo exhibition at Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton organised by Impure Art and starting this weekend and running until the end of February. A range of my UV work with the ‘3 UV Bums’ as centrepiece, and the classic ‘Bum-in-a-Box’ will be on display in the bar area of England’s most rock n roll hotel, located in Regency Square on Brighton Beach.
The exhibition starts on 9th January and runs until the end of February. The launch party, to which you are cordially invited, complete with a Japanese Rope Bondage demonstration will be at the hotel on the evening of Thursday 29th January, more details to follow soon.
Hotel Pelirocco offers funky themed rooms inspired by pop culture, sexy sirens and maverick musicians… it is a hip boutique hotel unlike any other in the UK.
I am pleased to announce the publication of “The Guild of Erotic Artist’s Book Vol 2” featuring six pages of my work along with the work of 31 of The Guild’s artists, photographers and sculptors and the background behind their skills.
This (approx) A4 size, 200 page limited edition paperback has been written, produced and published by The Guild of Erotic Artists including Ray Leaning and Eve Poland.
Whether you are a would-be photographer, an art student, or just interested in a good read, this book is a must. With a run of just 5,000 copies, the book is a Limited Edition – a collector’s item and an idea for a stocking filler.
An article about me has been published in a Ukrainian art collectors’ magazine called Graal Collection (Volume 2) which is published in Russian and English.
The magazine is a luxurious edition of some 180 pages. For those of you who speak Russian some information is available at http://graal-club.com/ (with a full website to follow). For the rest of you, the edition featuring myself (Volume 2) is available at 56 Euros (including shipping) by e-mailing Serhiy Kolyada (their designer) firstname.lastname@example.org
My work is being permanently exhibited at the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas. The museum is artistic and sexy but in particular is about educating people to the erotic arts. The work includes the Alice collage below as well as a selection of my UV work.
Just to let you know that my work has been accepted for exhibition on the London Underground. The exhibition has been organised through www.artbelow.org.uk who’s aim is to “Turn Ad Space Into Art”.
The first piece “3 UV Bottoms #1” will be put in place somewhere between 18th-22nd October and displayed for approximately two weeks at Euston Station -Northern Line Platform 6 Southbound [City Branch].
Truly Underground Erotic Art
Digital artist Robert Babylon’s erotic art has finally arrived on the main line under a scheme where art organisers www.artbelow.org.uk help artists display their work on international underground transport systems. Art Below, who have just completed an exhibition on the Tokyo Underground have awarded space to display the work of the fetish and erotic artist Robert Babylon on the London Underground.
Under a scheme which ‘turns ad space into art’ Robert Babylon’s acclaimed ‘3 UV Bottoms” has been turned into a 1.5m high poster for display alongside the more traditional commercial range of billboards.
The subterranean public display of Babylon’s work is somehow quite appropriate for this underground digital artist who’s work has, in the past, been more at home in venues like London’s Amora Academy in Piccadilly or the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas.
Some who recall Babylon’s work being removed from the wall of a London gallery after fears that his images would upset certain religious groups or on another occasion being seized from the walls during a police raid might even consider this a brave move by Art Below. However Babylon’s work is more usually outrageously colourful than offensive and unusually for the usual perception of erotic work, is most popular amongst a female audience.
The chosen piece ‘3 UV Bottoms’ comes from a series of work entitled ‘The Fluoro Girls’ featuring the bottoms of three young women wearing UV reactive fishnet tights. The fishnet material glows in stunning contrast to the strange blue skin-tones created by the UV lighting under which the series was created.
The poster can be viewed in it’s intended location at London Underground’s Euston station from 22nd October for two weeks
