BELASCO -LEGENDARY EROTIC ARTIST
You might not know Belasco by name, but you are probably most certainly familiar with his artwork. For years Belasco has produced some of the most arousing sexual imagery of black men ever created. Since the inception of the internet, his work has been viewed by millions all over the world.
Earlier this year Belasco received the 2007 Blatino Erotica Award (BEA) for his amazing commitment to producing erotic images of black men. What an honor it was for us to present him with this award.
On the surface, Belasco is a laid back, very low key kind of brutha. But give him some pencils, chalk, paint, plaster or clay and he will take you straight to erotic city baby!
Belasco even created a commemorative illustration of Blatino Oasis Palm Springs 2007 for everyone to download (click here).
I really, really enjoyed my time with Belasco and I hope to work with him again real soon. We had marvelous discussions about sex and shame and AIDS and just.....very freeing.
See our interview with him below and please keep pumping em out Belasco!
