Aurelio Pernice is an erotic artist from Sicily. His website is here:
His aim is to be the most famous Sicilian naive painter, and his paintings often show large and slightly deranged looking women, and animalised men, as above, or, suave latin lover types with mustaches.
I think some of them are supposed to represent the romantic folklore of Sicily. I like it. Hi style has improved since I first wrote this post and has become a lot more erotic and romantic and less absurdist (as it was initially.)
Sometimes he just draws dominas. What is it about the Rubenesque figure that so attracts the submissive man?
