Beau Bell: BeauMen

Beau, whose love of Tom of Finland is clearly seen in his works, made a name for himself by being published in magazines like MEN, MANDATE or UNZIPPED. Beau has exhibited his fine art work, which has been shown in several galleries throughout California, and has worked in the film industry in Hollywood. Beau is currently developing his photographic skills to produce another book based on his narrative ideas. He currently divides his time between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

In August 2004 Bruno Gmunder realeased the first art book by Beau, BeauMen:


Beau's men know what they want: men! Throughout 64 pages the painter Beau confronts us with explicit scenes full of seething lust and the fantasies we thought we'd lost. Raw, real, free from any romantic complication, they play their games of dominance and devotion. Yet in these men's faces the viewer sees a longing for love and physical closeness beyond the images of flesh and fetish.

In the same month was published also a collection of the best pictures taken from the comic book in a handy post card book format:

Following in August 2005 was BeauMen 2:


The Californian painter and illustrator BEAU understands how to draw unrelenting scenes of dominance and submission. They provoke and completely pull the viewer into his world. In a very American, Hollywoodesque style the painter creates intensive gay fantasies unleashing them upon the viewer. But behind the unforgiving façade of sexual desire you can often see the yearning for love and physical contact beyond mere fetish and flesh.
