Exotic Ecstasies

Felix D’Eon is a gay Mexican artist who re-imagines history through a same-sex filter and captures romance in a style that appears authentically historic.  His work exudes a joyfulness and playfulness that invites the viewer to  re-imagine history along with him. 

 "I view it all as form of propaganda, a tool to normalize something that has been seen as deviant and outlaw for so long, and to capture a language of love and nostalgia for the gay community that has always been denied us."

Very gentle erotica. :)

Propaganda needs to be gentle to easily slip into the minds of the masses :)

Interesting artwork.  Not overtly sexual.  Some not even erotic - just look like they could have been someone's postcard (if our world actually accepted all along the sexual spectrum.)

Haha before the page loaded fully I was going to remark that The Future of Love looked like lesbian 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea...then it loaded more and I realized there was another picture titled Love at 20,000 Leagues.

Now those have really made me smile... Some are erotic....and others are delightfully kitsch... 

@celeste teal - You're always treating us to the most wonderful images... Thanks for that! :)

@BenedettaC You're very welcome! I really enjoy gathering the images up and posting them. It's  like I've discovered a dream job - Virtual Museum Curator and it's very gratifying to hear that people like to see them. I read that Felix is an artist who completely bypassed the traditional recognition-distribution channels of the art world and posts his creations directly on the internet so I feel like I'm helping him too by posting them here. It's a win-win-win...:)

Yes! That's exactly it - I see you as a curator...in fact, the most valuable kind, because you show people alot of things that they might not otherwise come in contact with... I

Despite my love of and serious interest in erotica of all kinds, I hadn't ever seen or heard about Felix's work, but I've been on his website, and now I'm totally hooked! Lots of wonderful images, and also gifts, there... The fact that he illustrates lesbianism too is very unusual. He mentions Tom of Finland (whose real name was Touko Valio Laaksonen) on his website, and I have always been interested in his work (and knew him for a short time in NYC), although he only illustrated gay men (biker types...and BDSM imagery)... I have to admit that I love gay male erotic illustrations (and also photography, like the work produced by Robert Mapplethorpe), as well as female ones, if they're done well...

I'm also interested in contemporary Mexican art (including Mexican photography from the 19th century forward), so Felix is also a great find in that area as well... He manages to combine his Mexican  and gay sensibilities together with a range of art-historical styles, to very erotic and, ultimately, subversive effect.   

Thanks again! :D:D:D

This collection is entirely epic. WOW! Wherever did you find all of these gems?

Stunning, there is a life force here that is palpable!

Celeste you should open a gallery with a feminine focus.

@ZuZu'sPetals Thanks :) I found a first few by serendipity then I focused like a librarian laser beam on finding more.  Years of school and work have made me into a fierce and relentless information hunter.

Do you mean here at Shybi, or in the brick and mortar world?

You are living the dream here already, maybe one day you can open one in brick and mortar!

You have the aesthetic eye for sure and I feel like it would be celebrated by all women.

These are beautiful and sexy! The nun in the first one is Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. She kicked all sorts of ass.
