My Fetish Inspiration and Work

I’ve said before in another blog, that one of the things I truly appreciate in art is being given an opportunity to see through someone else’s eyes. To have another person share their experiences and views in what it is that they want to say or express.   When I was first studying art I […]

Posted by Dez x on July 29, 2016 in Art |No Comments

Would it not be true to say that most images produced today, are about Hedonism in some way or another?
