If I put myself in a painting, then I would be one of those guys who puts themselves in their paintings.

Kristen and Lilith is a mixed media painting by Perry V Wade.

From the archives

From the archives. “Tehran Jaway” 100 x 80 cm, acrylic on canvas. Shown in the Us on the US exhibition at the ABC Treehouse Gallery in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in 2006.

Political art isn’t my bailiwick, but it was sort of the nature of the show and “purpose-built” for the occasion.

Tehran Jaway original painting by Perry V Wade.

It was inspired by Norman Rockwell’s The Runaway. My version is a commentary on the status quo in the Middle East. And yes, I understand that Iranians are Persians and not Arabs, but coming up with titles is something I usually struggle with, and the quasi-anagram, “Tehran Jaway”, worked for me despite its misplaced allusion.

These paintings, which depict scenarios that are suggestive and  risque and unsettling, are representative of my transition to a more overtly sexual style and are indicative of my inclination to épater les bourgeois.

Hello and welcome to my blog

This blog is brand new and a long time coming. This inaugural post consists of my latest works. My style, which I describe as Cute Fetish, was initially more whimsical and thematically ambiguous, but as I have incrementally freed myself of the need to not offend people my work has become more outre and niche and provocative. My work is typically of a sexual nature and is — ipso facto — inherently polarizing. Moreover, some of my compositions include scenarios of questionable morality, if not of outright perversion, and tend to evoke a squirmyness that makes some people uncomfortable and avoid eye contact.
