DLS Art Gallery 2019 Artist #4: Christopher B. Mooney

Christopher B. Mooney is known in the lifestyle and kink community as professional artist in Portland, OR currently creating figurative and erotic art works. Mr. Mooney received a Bachelor Fine Arts Degree from Parson’s School of Design, NY.  Continuing studies in portraiture workshops by Paul Missal at Pacific Northwest Collage of Art, Portland, OR

Throughout history we’ve been creating figurative art, Mr. Mooney finds it important to continue that inspiration as a favorite subject. Creating figurative erotic works, the subjects in each of the paintings were posed in natural light or occasionally lit with red and blue flood lights. It creates shapes of color that give the figures a more ambience and contemporary style. He hopes the viewer to recognize the fascination how this lighting brings out each subject’s emotional undertones, allowing their natures to rise to the surface.

           Mr. Mooney likes to meet people in the community to take photographs, sketch, and create paintings, primarily in oil on canvas, to portray their thoughts and feelings, and to create an erotic atmosphere of people in their environments. His work is of the ‘old masters’ style. He always looks forward to meeting any potential models who aren’t shy about art or the artist!  “I’ve created erotic works reflecting both kinky and/or fantasy-based poses, classical cuddling scenes, boudoir scenes, raw sex scenes and kissing scenes. Artists have old habits and I need to get out from under mine. I like to create paintings as a tool to explore my sexual nature – areas of my life that need sexuality without the baggage. For me, art is a real exploration of my inner self.”

            He has displayed his erotic art work at: L ALAN ARTS PROJECT @ the CATALYST ART & CULTURAL SPACE; Club Privata; Sanctuary; The Dirty Show in Detroit, Michigan; PDX Kink Festival; Nude Nite Tampa, Florida; and Seattle Erotic Art Festival.

DLS Art Gallery 2019 Artist #2: BokehBabe

“My goal is to create inspirational art. I believe that imagery should make you feel good about yourself or make you smile thinking about something that you love. What we surround ourselves with has the ability to affect how we feel, so why not surround ourselves with art that makes us happy? That is my motto and my goal with helping others live more inspired lives through art.

I offer prints of my personal work and offer custom photography sessions.

If you want to see more work or contact me….

A New Year, A New Show: Call for Art is Open!

Dirty Little Secrets Art Gallery announces the Call for Art for the 2019 Kinkfest Festival!

Join us in the vendor hall of the West coast’s largest kink festival to show and sell your erotic art to an appreciative audience from around the globe. Show dates are April 19th – 21st, 2019.

This is a chance to display your art and to make some sales without paying for a full-sized booth, while still being part of the largest kink festival on the West coast. Art panels will be set up in the center of the vendor hall where festival attendees can view your art, ask questions, and make purchases while relaxing between classes and events.

This is not a juried show. Show the pieces that YOU want the world to see. YOU set the price for your art.

Reserve one or several panels – up to 20 panels available. A 4’x8′ panel costs only $25, and 20% of your sales will go to the Kinkfest scholarship fund.

3D art is also being accepted! Only 3 4×4 areas will be available. So get your request in early!

Don’t forget our store! Not only will you be displaying your best work on our panels, but you are welcome to bring prints, cards, and stickers to sell in our Dirty Little Secrets Cartel for no additional fee. 20% commission on store sales will still apply.
