The Bob Mizer Foundation is dedicated to recognizing and promoting artists from all walks of life and in all disciplines, and we place a special emphasis on experimental photographers. If you know of any photographers or artists who might make good profile subjects for our blog, please contact us.
This month's profiled artist is Mikel Marton of Canada.
Mikel Marton is among the newest faces in the field of male nude photography from behind and in front of the lens. With a stimulating blend of male eroticism and the gloss of editorial fashion photography he delivers a unique and dreamy style, testing that sensitive line that separates art and pornography
"Through my eyes (and body) I want to express the male body in a challenging, yet sensitive way, as well as give the viewer a unique opportunity to step inside a stylized version of my own sexual fantasies."
Mikel is currently represented by the contemporary art gallery "Envoy" in New York City, but he currently resides in Montreal, Quebec. Between NYC and Montreal he alternates between fine and commercial art, mainly focusing on photography; but as well, all visual and design related aspects of his photo works, art direction, and various areas of erotic performance art.
