Benoît Prévot (French)
Prévot is a French illustrator and comic artist that creates stylish homo-erotica. He studied in the EMSAT (Municipal School of Art and Technics). The artist says, “My favorite medium is ink and graphite on paper, because I work a lot in black and white and I like the firm contact of the pencil on the paper. I’m trying to make oil now. It is a new pleasure, but this is not so easy to work on as a soft surface with a pencil that is soft too. When I want to do a new drawing with something fun in it, in connection with eroticism, I start to find an idea, a situation. I think then I make sketches and after that I start the piece. I used to draw the peoples most of the time with my imagination. I have models who pose for me sometimes and this is how I really like to work.”
ION (Greek), "Sparta", 2011, Ink on paper, 11.63" x 8.25", Gift from artist
The artist, from Athens, Greece, has donated this work to Tom of Finland Foundation.
In 1993, Ion was a Third Prize Winner in the Tom of Finland Foundation’s Emerging Erotic Artist Contest. Since the Contest, the artist has sent several additional works for inclusion in the Foundation’s permanent collection. All of his work includes military themes transformed with a sense of humor; martial hardware becomes the phallic symbol of male sexuality.
“Glory to those gorgeous Herculain guys.”
