Macaroni with Cheese and A Drop of…

Italians are often recognized for their own slightly sloppy charm, so to speak. Luisa Terminiello seems to be that kind of girl who probably would have preferred to be born a boy. We still find that femininity unaltered in her artistic creations, a tease that shows her face with shyness. Somewhere behind these naughty photos, as a disorder, lyricism […]

The Melancholy of Eroticism. Dave Bee

Eroticism is for many of us just a symbol of a vulgar, vile manner. Dave Bee tries through his photographic achievements to fit this form of expression and feeling into the elitist space of art. Can one find art where few only notice the obscene? That’s very easy, I’d mention, especially if you can see […]

Denis Kulikov is a Russian self-taught photographer based in Saint Petersburg and he finds most of his models through the web.

Art Without Nudes Is Just “Eh”! Mikki Marvel by 2nd Life Photography

Nudes have been, like forever, the artists’ leitmotif. It has always been fashionable, but not really into contemporary world. We’re not talking here about a stylish matter, but about an irresistible desire of watching the natural beauty of the human body.

This Is Not A Love Song, Part. XII: Larsen Sotelo

This is not a love editorial. Somehow, this wants to be a sort of an introduction into another world, where, love exists, don’t worry, but, in other forms, more rudimental, more vivid, more natural, without that tricks you are seeing, daily, on TV or which airs on the Radio Station, tender and sweet and namby-pamby shity songs. To be short, we are […]

Sarah Likes Pretty Girls And We Like Sarah

Sarah Bleszynski has a “bad” habit, sarahlikesprettygirls, as we all do. “Sarah Bleszynski´s work represents a refreshing honest pictorial of women made by women.” (source) Very true, indeed, but for me, this sounds more like a woman fight, into a boxing ring fenced with all kinds of subtleties. I won’t use big words, big words is for nerds; […]

California native, “occasional gypsy”, as he likes to say, Justin is a Boston based photographer/artist.

There are about a billion coffee […]

Cultartes ‘Cinema’ Presents Friday Films by Chase Hart

“My name is Chase Hart, I like to shoot photos.” Well, this is a hell of a description.

Chase Hart is the figure behind the project named Friday […]

Ivanna Ravac, “The Fairy Godmother of Having Fun” – NSFW

The word “Ravac” has more meanings, which kind of lead you to the same place.  It represents either stum dripping by itself from grapes within the winepress, clear wine which stood at low temperatures or wine obtained from mountain fruits. Maybe this description doesn’t seem significant, but for me it is a reminder of my […]

Andreea Andrei Exclusive for Cultartes: “Fuck Money and Fame!”

To be very honest and to say who Andreea Andrei is… is a complicated thought. She’s an art lover, she likes rain and the smell of it, she travels by herself to see Europe and to find her inner peace. She’s a cat lover and a wine drinker, she smells like Chanel (always but her alter ego […]

Clothe Me With The Nakedness of Your Shadow. Julie Munier

  You can dress my existence, with the nakedness of your shadow, my dear! This phrase it came in my semi-poetic mind when I saw the Julie’s photo-journal, if I can call it that way. Shapes. Everything moves around shapes. The human shapes and their eroticism, to be more accurate.  Julie Munier is a very […]
