ABOUT THE ARTIST
REX is an American artist, whose career began in New York in the mid-‘60s. His meticulous black and white homoerotic drawings, rendered in a pointillist pen and ink technique, first appeared at a seminal moment in the ‘60s, when photographic pornography was still illegal but drawings and stories were protected by Supreme Court “free speech” rulings in the United States.
His art was showcased in a number of pioneering gay American publications such as THE ADVOCATE and DRUMMER MAGAZINE. However, it was his hardcore drawings in a series of self-published portfolios circulating underground in America and Europe, that cemented his reputation as a leading cult artist of esoteric sexual imagery over the past five decades. His most internationally recognized work was a series of iconic posters and t-shirt designs for the legendary New York sex club THE MINESHAFT. As a chiaroscuro illustrator of perverse and psychologically disturbing images, he was branded “persona non grata” by the American art establishment which until today has refused to acknowledge his fecund imagery. The artist resides in the Netherlands where he continues to work.
