MONDO EROTICA - THE ART OF ROBERTO BALDAZZINI
[Erotica - Comix - Illustration]
Over a prolific 30-year career, acclaimed comic creator, illustrator and artist Roberto Baldazzini has created a sexual and surreal world of the imagination inspired by Pop Art, Art Nouveau, ’40s glamour, film noir, Bandes Dessinées and fetish model Bettie Page. Mondo Erotica is an overdue showcase of Baldazzini’s provocative and often courageous work; a celebration of the controlled contours and refined lines of an erotic visionary.
Robert Baldazzini is an Italian comic book writer and artist renowned for his graphic line work. He first came to prominence in 1984 with the publication of Stella Norris. From 1995 he began focusing on erotic comics with such works as Trans Est, Casa HowHard and Chiara Rosenberg. He subsequently became known for his characteristically visceral but elegant, black and white style. And today, as his reputation grows, he is just as likely to be working on a gallery show as his next comic strip.
