Can a sex toy be considered art? Are big girls sexy? How do you see beauty in the female form?
All those questions were posed in an exciting art exhibit where eight renowned artists displayed their individual works of art. Each a plaster cast made out of the same mold used to create the April Flores Voluptuous CyberSkin Pussy.
This sex toy is the first replica of a large woman ever produced by Topco Sales. It forces the question: can big girls be sexy? Is a natural woman more desirable than an ultra-thin one?
The eight artists that used April as a canvas include:
Axis is a provocative graphic illustrator and graffiti artist known for his bold images.
Carlos Batts is an accomplished film director, producer, and artist, who claims April Flores as his muse.
Known for smoking devils and outrageous monsters adorning everything from t-shirts to skate boards and album covers, COOP is an integral part of subversive LA art scene.
Jim Mahfood is a prolific comic book artist and member of the prestigious new Artsprojekt.
Kim Buzzelli combines fashion, music and witchcraft to design evocative paintings, illustrations and installations.
The mad-scientist pairing of Kozy & Dan results in unforgettable graphic designs, hip clothing and the Bunnyfish.
Misha is equally famous for her Large Eye, Japanese-inspired takes on famous figures and her brilliantly detailed tattoo art.
New Wave rocker and artist Small Paul has left his mark on countless celebrities as a highly sought after tattoo artist.
April is a vivacious performance artist and admired by many for her openess with her voluptious female figure.
