Bodypainting Photoshoot, Sept 2016

Last fall, I collaborated with photographer @misterburris, who shoots bodypainting events, among other things. We wanted to do a photo shoot of body painting in a private outdoor setting. My nudist friend Shai agreed to paint with me and my artist/nudist friend Chuck graciously agreed to host.

Here are the photos of Shai and me painting each other.

NuDance naked dance class

So I finally went to NuDance on Friday. It was been something I’d been wanting to do for some time. Although I took some ballroom dance classes a while ago, I had never done any street-style dance. DamoN taught us some basics. I don’t even know the names of what we did, but I had a great time. I need sooo much improvement so I’ll definitely go back!

I’m looking for naked friends (any gender) to go with me for this class! JOIN ME.

NuDance is a weekly naked street/urban/hip-hop dance class taught by DamoN and organized by It meets every Friday night, usually 9-10pm in Manhattan (location varies). For more info and to join their email list:

Video: Shungaboy: a nude artist and his men’s naked drawing group

Shungaboy: a nude artist and his men’s naked drawing group by Barbara Marcolini

This is a video by Barbara Marcolini about me and my naked drawing group. She is a student in the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism here in NYC; the video is part of her coursework, and Bob Sacha is her professor. Here’s the video: THE VIDEO IS TEMPORARILY NOT VIEWABLE BECAUSE IT IS BEING EDITED…

Barbara was working with another student, Joshua Futtersak. The super-duo of Josh and Barbara came to my home studio to shoot a B-roll, followed by filming at a live drawing session, the results of which you can see in her video. They were very professional, in-your-face but in the most unobtrusive way. What a fantastic experience!

Male Dancers: Power and Grace

I think male ballet dancers are sexy as f*ck. When in motion, they turn their awesome bodies into pure power and grace, leaping, flying through the air in a manner one wouldn’t think humanly possible. In quieter moments, they express poetic emotions.

I have been doing paintings of male dancers for a while, experimenting with different techniques, styles and mediums. I really like my current direction. Using fat brushes and fluid paint, I try to capture the movement and energy that I see on stage. In a live performance the dancers are nearly a blur, constantly in motion; going too fast to see any detail. I attempt to capture that feeling. More development to come…

These paintings will be on exhibit in the “Cream Pies and Other Delights” erotic art fair by the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, June 12-14, 2015. 127 Prince St, New York, NY (corner Wooster St, basement gallery, use stairs from sidewalk). #powerandgrace #creampiesandart
