”As a kid in college I actually made paintings fusing Tom of Finland with He man and Gi JOE so for them to come to me now and ask to do a collaboration is full circle.” @slickitup

Join us For Michael Kirwan - A Celebration of a Life Well Illustrated
30th June | Enjoy the Artwork - Honor the Artist
Without a doubt Michael Kirwan’s illustrations are sexually charged, quite often even pretty horny—but they are also a witty distillate of gay lust and realities. It’s seeing, understanding and painting: Kirwan doesn’t care for soft-focus and smooth idolization of beauty; comparable to Otto Dix he rather gets inspired by mere lust than high-gloss desires. His idea of sex is not about after shave and eau de toilette, it’s about sweat and hot breath.
1:00-4:30p
Please bring a light entrée, dessert, salad – something to share.
The Foundation will supply beverages.

Also consider bringing some of your personal photos or print outs of your favorite Kirwans.

All are welcome, please come and enjoy an exhibition of Michael’s work.

#MichaelKirwan was the first artist-in-residence at Tom of Finland Foundation, and the room he inhabited at TOM House is now officially named “The Kirwan Solarium”. In his work, his “everyman” characters are perfect specimens of lust. Everything the artist attempts is far, far from average. He has weathered many storms, always staying true to his trade. - Durk Dehner, #MyGayEye
