The illustrator Robert Fontanelli had an all-too-quick show in Chelsea last week that I, unfortunately, missed. A friend sent me pictures on his iPhone of Fontanelli’s drawings which led me to his site. His work is a combination of fashion illustration and homoerotic imagery mixed with the fetishism of all things mid-century modern. Some of the images are sexy (“Storage”) while others are, somewhat, disturbing ("Rape of Red Eames Chair #1"). All of them are, in my humble opinion, brilliant.

    This seductive and intelligent new work of Mr Fontanelli
    is the antidote to the banal state of “acceptable”
    current illustration catagorized as homoerotic .
    He is a visual poet .
    I am honored to be representing some of his earlier studys : google Corey Grant Tippin “mixed-up”
