|The Erotic Men Amsterdam: Seeing, Feeling and Smelling Sensations!|
by our Editors in Art & Expo , 27 juli 2015
For the second time, Gallery MooiMan will be showcasing itself at Amsterdam Pride - now with the Erotic Male in Art. From Friday, July 24 to Sunday, August 2, the top floor of Gays & Gadgets will be the domain of tough men in art who will show themselves from every possible perspective; visual, tactile and olfactory.
Yes, smell! Not only are there drawings by Wim Beullens (Belgium), bronze statues by Ivo Black (Germany), but some original and signed drawings by Tom of Finland can also be admired. In the context of a cultural exchange, part of this museum collection was shown during EuroPride Riga 2015 in Latvia, in the Museum of Modern Art in Riga.
A very different sensation, new to The Netherlands, and on display at this exhibition is the work of Portuguese artist Vilela Valentin. Besides on erotic drawings and paintings, he is now also focusing on making his own soap. His brand Blue Beard, Art in Soap, is made from 100% natural ingredients.
The soap certainly is a feast for the eye because of the perfectly manufactured packaging with drawings by the artist. Some of these soaps will be available, for instance a soap in a wrapping with two peeing men. This soft scented soap has the appropriate name “drops of vanilla tears.” Or maybe you prefer “tutti frutti lollipop” with a bearded gentleman lustfully licking a lolly that is somewhat too big? Be quick, because hand-made does mean that supplies are limited.
