Originally from California, 24-year old Justin Sears lives in NYC now. He does fairly large-scale realistic illustrative pieces on wood. No color splash, here, and no wall-to-wall paint. The narrow color range is all in the foreground, while the wood supports provide all the negative space. Subject matter is men, myth, masculinity with a distinctly surreal edge. His big portraits, like this one of a hot ash dude, are fairly strait-forward, while his historical and re-workings of classic themes bring most of the twists. He describes his work as a “masculine mix of industrialized pop art on organic surfaces.” See more at his website. Oh, he designs leather clothing, too. Cool!

Morris Taylor Art! Sexual Energy and Power at the Center for Sex and Culture.
Hot Morris Art! Folsom kinky art reception! Friday, September 27th from 5 – 8 pm. At the Center for Sex and Culture at 1349 Mission Street in San Francisco. Drop in early before the evening’s other activities.
Morris Taylor’s exhibit, Sexual Energy and Power features twenty-five watercolors. Through realism and abstract styles the painter calls attention to outward manifestations of the inner sexual drive. Dominance and submission is a thread that unifies the subject matter.
The strokes are designed to draw the viewer to the unique beauty and ageless nature of the human body. Dark and light forces lurk inside the psyche that needs overt expressions of dignity and safety
About Morris: During the past fifteen years Morris Taylor has had 15 one-person shows at venues such as Grace Cathedral, Magnet in the Castro, Club Eros Gallery, and the Citadel. As Master Morris, he participates fully in the leather scene frequently giving workshops and demonstrations. He currently holds the title, International Master 2013.
