'Love & Paint': An Artist Makes Passionate Sex To Arts

Filed Under () at 3/21/2012 02:51:00 PM

The thirty-year-old Parson's graduate says that 'love is a creative force' and tells the couples (nearly 50 have signed up so far) to 'have fun with the paint, but don't make it all about the paint'

A New York-based artist has been inviting amorous couples to make creative magic on his canvas by covering themselves in paint and letting their impulses get the better of them.

Alexander Esguerra leaves the couples in a completely private setting - no Andy Warhol-style voyeurism here - with low-lighting, candles and even a heated canvas.

'I woke up one morning after a sexual encounter and my normally organized room was a mess,” he told the New York Daily News.

'I wanted to artistically capture those moments through the act of sex that our bodies interacted and affected the space around us without bringing in that whole played-out porn spiel.'

Nearly fifty couples have been inspired to sign up for the project.

They cover themselves in non-toxic, water-based paint and set up the canvas on a floor covered in plastic.There's nothing smutty about it.

Full of slapped paint, finger and hand marks, streaks of passion and blurred action

The project has become so popular with his friends and customers that Mr Esguerra has turned it into a business.

He now sells 'Love and Paint' experiences, where the couple will create the art in a luxury hotel, packages - including ample body paint, of course, start at $2,500.

Mr Esguerra is now preparing for his seventh exhibition of Love and Paint, launching next Tuesday at famously wild New York nightclub, The Box.
