Works by Ele D’Artagnan
Ele D’Artagnan... Fallofaniz (Sex Trinty, 1977, mixed media on paper). From a brilliant exhibition of Works by Ele D’Artagnan at K.S. Art in New York, NY. "...KS ART presents Italian artist Ele D’Artagnan’s second one–person show in New York, featuring his visionary drawings and watercolors from the 1970s. D’Artagnan (1911–1987), a trained actor, self-taught artist, and vagabond extraordinaire who floated in and out of the Italian Surrealist scene, made drawings employing a cosmic sexuality and psychedelic line that anticipate the vital work by numerous young artists today. D’Artagnan’s libidinally charged drawings had, for the most part, never previously been publicly exhibited before his first exhibition in 2003 at KS Art; five of these drawings were recently acquired by the Museum of Modern Art."
