The Deviated Luscious
Top 33 pieces from Devianart List...
Shamelessly and proud, I am a confessed fan of pinup art. I curate a popular niche pinup group at deviantart.com which provides me the opportunity to peruse the galleries of the world's greatest pinup artists. For me, idealized female physical beauty is inspiring and displays of female eroticism cause my mind to delight in the presumption of carefree playfulness. Reality defies the fantasy and there are powerful philosophical implications for the indulgence of tarrying between the two and risking entrenched conflation. If others enjoy pinup art for simpler reasons, then I am not here to judge such things, but I find engaging with this mode of representation anything but trivial. I applaud anyone who asserts heteronormative values as legitimate in this era where they have been attacked by those who hold no stake in that particular culture. And so I forward a significant contribution to the cause - a good work - a gallery featuring thirty-three of the most provocative pinup works from deviantart. The artwork is presented in no particular order and the selections are purely based on my personal taste.
