A new solo exhibit in Los Angeles displays the artist’s early erotic works
Lately, it seems there’s a new exhibit of Touko Laaksonen (a.k.a. Tom of Finland) works just about every few months (and the exhibit of his work with Bob Mizer in L.A. in 2013 received a lot of attention). Now the David Kordansky Gallery is exhibiting Early Work 1944 – 1972, which surveys the artist’s formative years across 15 works. The L.A. exhibit continues through March 7, and each work was selected in close collaboration with the Los Angeles-based Tom of Finland Foundation.
