John Currin (born 1962) is an American painter. He is best known for satirical figurative paintings which deal with provocative sexual and social themes in a technically skillful manner. His work shows a wide range of influences, including sources as diverse as the Renaissance, popular culture magazines, and contemporary fashion models. He often distorts or exaggerates the erotic forms of the female body.
Carlos Zéfiro was a Brazilian artist who drew pornographic comics.
His small publications were circulated underground during the 1950s
and 1960s. Here fellow countryman and graphic designer Felipe Taborda,
who has reprinted a selection of the comics, explains Zéfiro’s contribution
to Brazilian culture.
