Sergio Mutty

Barcelona Cataluña España 2015

Though he’s probably known most widely for his performances in professional SadoMasochistic videos as a particularly abusive top, I have learned to enjoy the short amateur videos he posts on Twitter and other sites.  They’re just short, simple, little videos of him beating off and displaying his fairly sizable tool, but they show him in (at least what I and a few others find) a more appealing light where his arrogance, narcissism and rather considerable physical beauty has a chance to shine.

DO WHAT THOU WILT, Richard Hawkins

Los Angeles CA, 2014-15
Acrylic & Collage on Canvas

Among the various contemporary Queer artists of my generation who paint, I am particularly fond of the work done by Richard Hawkins; and I especially like this group of paintings he did a couple of years ago.  His palette is pretty bright and the brushwork fairly loose and it all looks fresh and unmediated.  It also comes off as not unskilled.  The titles are smart and funny too.
