ARTundressed offers a quality 'Naughty Weekend' in Miami, FL

If you are at a loose end in Florida this weekend and looking for some high quality entertainment with a different edge or perhaps some unique artwork for your walls; then ARTundressed's 6th Annual Creative Nude Art Festival offers a naughty weekend in Miami and may be just the tonic for you.

Robert Babylon at ARTundressed

This year Robert Babylon's work is appearing in the 'Invited Artist' category and there will be a fine display of his UV and 'natural' light work - although sadly this year he won't be able to join his work in Miami due to a prior engagement. The festival is three days of erotic entertainment of all kinds - full details of locations and times are available at the ARTundressed website http://artundressed.com/index.php/info/features

ARTundressed celebrates the artistic, humorous, and sensual aspects of creative nude art; both in visual and performance arts.  Since its inception, this event has toured many different countries and numerous cities from all over the world, including Miami, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Berlin (Germany), as well as Montreal and Toronto (Canada).  The collection of exhibited artworks is always top-notch showcasing some of today most talented, creative, renowned artists and photographers.  To differentiate our event, we go through a very calculated and selective process to feature top local, national and international artists, exhibiting some of the best nude art that exert the highest level of creativity.

In addition to displaying the best creativity in the nude art genre, a great amount of effort is spent on complimenting the "visual arts" portion of the event with Outrageous Fashion and Tantalizing Entertainment including Top International Deejays, Live Music, and Sexy Performance Art.  Attending the ARTundressed event is truly a memorable, interactive, and erogenous experience.

RB Work Available at 12 Inches of Sin's IMMERSIVE in Las Vegas

If there's still a taboo around erotic art in Las Vegas, rest assured: Dr. Laura Henkel is breaking it. The curator and specialist in human sexuality helms the Sin City Gallery. She also runs 12 Inches of Sin, an annual juried erotic art exhibition. Now, for the competition’s fifth year, an immersive art experience will accompany the annual competition.

RB at Sin City IMMERSIVE in Las Vegas

My work will be amongst the 300 works of erotic art included in the evenings festivities.

For the April 9 event, Dr. Henkel is taking over the entire Arts Factory complex, the converted warehouse where Sin City Gallery is located, amongst other fine art studios and commercial galleries. She hopes to encourage Las Vegas’ downtown arts scene, and from 1 PM to midnight, the complex will be filled with visual and performance art, lectures, and live entertainment.

“Sin City Gallery is dedicated to providing a serious professional forum, exhibit space, and series of publications for practitioners of provocative art who have too long been marginalized or excluded from so much of the art world,” reads a press release for the event.

Robert Babylon Exhibits at Seattle (WA) Erotic Art Festival

Good luck they say come in threes and I'll agree since this is my third year exhibiting at the mighty Seattle Erotica Arts Festival (SEAF) and this year the judges have accepted three of my most popular photographs onto their hallowed walls for exhibition and sale.

2016 Festival will be hosted on April 22-24 at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall.

Tickets are on sale now from the SEAF Website.

Robert Babylon at SEAF

About SEAF:

The Seattle Erotic Art Festival is an experience unlike any other festival or gallery you have likely ever attended.  Over the course of three days, a curated selection of some of the finest erotic art the world has to offer will grace the floors of the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall, awaiting your perusal and enjoyment.

During regular festival hours, you are invited to view the art and daily entertainments, from poetry readings to pantomime to acrobatic displays.  There is also the Festival Store, where you can often find prints by the artists featured in the festival as well as other unique items and annual Seattle Erotic Art Festival merchandise. In the evenings, the vibe changes from a gallery to sexy art party. The Late Night Festival is a sexy, fun time with DJs, performers, bartenders at the ready, and a fantastically energetic crowd.

The Festival art will engage you, titillate you, and make you think.  Not every piece is to everyone’s tastes, but there is something there that will speak to you – and what doesn’t can lead to some fascinating conversations. Whether you are joining us for the first time and new to the sex positive community, or have attended these events for years – this festival is for you.

Looking for more tantalizing glimpses at what's on offer for you this year?

"HIDDEN" ART Exhibition at The Nude Tin Can Gallery in St. Albans

"HIDDEN" ART Exhibition at The Nude Tin Can Gallery in St. Albans

The exhibition has started but fear not - it is not yet over and my neon painting "UV Liquid Gold" will be on display at the gallery in all it's neon splendor for a while longer.

For all of those of you who can reach St Albans there is a chance to see one of my fluorescent Acrylic on Canvas paintings. Illuminated with UV light it glows creating a realistic experience of the original scene. My UV photography is viewed under 'normal' lighting while my Neon Artwork is fluorescent and is best viewed under UV light. The painting may also be viewed under 'normal' lighting but it takes on a whole new aspect when seen under UV lighting.

Robert Babylon at Nude Tin Can Gallery

About the Exhibition:

​A story within the art piece. A hidden meaning. An abstract concept. On occasion the artist is generous and reveals to the viewer the reason and meaning behind their creations...often the observer must discover and invent their own interpretation. Each piece of art will encourage the viewer to wonder and discover the narrative behind the work. A person, a place, a happening.

The Art Gallery opened it's doors in May 2015. Located in St Albans - 22 minutes from London Kings Cross & St Pancras Station and situated in this beautiful and historical City.

The exhibition will exhibit a wide variation and interpretation of the Erotic theme. With a diverse talented selection of artists there will be life-size sculptures, erotic paintings, brilliant photographic work.​ 25 Artists are already confirmed for the exhibition.

On this site you will find a vibrant BDSM community from around the globe, for communication and networking. You will find accounts of real-life BDSM experiences accompanied by personal photos and albums. You will also find up-to-date articles and interesting discussions on issues such as slave training, the submissive personality, the dominant traits, sadism and masochism, consent, polyamory, femdom and maledom, practices such as the use of chastity belts, CBT, needles, shibari, cross-dressing, forced feminization, aspects of punishment, after-care, the structure of a BDSM session, the submissive trance, domspace and many others.

We would like to promote an increased awareness of the risks of the lifestyle and the need to adhere to the moral rules required by BDSM, urging all members of the community to keep it safe, sane and consensual. We believe BDM to be an erotic lifestyle to be practiced by responsible, emotionally sensitive people with deep respect for human dignity and other's needs. Our lifestyle is geared towards a deeper knowledge of ourselves, a more authentic and liberated eroticism, strong emotional bonds, and a greater enjoyment of life itself.

Babylon Images at Sin City Gallery in Las Vegas

Robert Babylon’s award winning erotic UV (blacklight) photographs are once again to be displayed at Sin City Gallery, voted one of America's top 5 Galleries and the best art gallery in Nevada.

The images will be on display as part of the 12" Sin juried competition and exhibition in which Robert won a place in January with "Blacklight BumbleBee Legs". SinCity Gallery will also be marketing more of Robert's unique and erotic work through their gallery and website.

Robert Babylon - Erotic Photography - 12 inches of Sin

12 Inches of Sin features sophisticated, intelligent, witty and provocative artworks from around the world.  The juried exhibition explores eroticism and sensuality through the lens of contemporary art, with one twist: every piece submitted for consideration must not be larger than one foot square.  This constriction of the art’s physical space creates a tension within the art itself, expanding the challenge inherent in each piece’s creation.

The exhibition fosters fresh and exciting work by both new and established artists, and provides art patrons with the opportunity to secure works of art from prestigious and emerging artists that embody both the cutting edge of today’s contemporary art world and the vast breadth of artistic expression.

Sin City Gallery Las Vegas

Sin City Gallery will also be exhibiting other Robert Babylon artwork at the exhibition and offering more Of Robert's unique works in it's ever increasing on-line catalogue.

Win a Free Photo Shoot with Robert Babylon at The Brighton Fetish Weekend

Brighton Fetish Weekend

The Brighton Fetish Weekend 2014 runs from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th June. Tickets are available for individual events but weekend tickets for admission to all the events are the best value at only £40.

Robert will be taking a major role at this year's Brighton Fetish Weekend by offering a free photo shoot prize for ticket holders. One of the issues with erotic photography is that many people are reluctant to be recognised, which is a shame because the human body should be a cause for celebration. We hope that we have come up with a solution: a photo competition which doesn't include faces.

An advance purchase of any BFW ticket entitles you to submit a kinky photo of your good self (which may be of your body only, not showing your head or face), with a view to winning the truly amazing First Prize: a professional “Body Landscapes and Abstracts” photo shoot (valued at £400) by Robert Babylon at his Hampshire studio.

How to enter: You will need to be in possession of any advance ticket for the weekend, purchased through the Tickets section of the website at http://www.brightonfetishweekend.co.uk. Once you have received your email notification from WeGotTickets, please forward that to us at bfetw@outlook.com, together with the image you would like to submit.

The judges are not looking for technical ability, or quality of image in your entry, instead we are looking for witty and erotic originality. So cameraphones, box-brownies and Hasselblads all have an equal chance of winning. It’s artistic composition not the depth of your pockets we are interested in.

The full rules and details are on the BFW Photo Competition Webpage

Robert's work will be on show at the events during the weekend and he has provided the key image for the BFW advertising along with many other photographs.

Roberts images will be screened during the Fetish Expo on Saturday afternoon (12:00-18:00), where his work will be on sale along with that of other erotic artists and photographers.

Date: 28/06/2014
Time: 12:00 - 18:00
Event Cost: In advance £15 or £16.50 on the door
Location: Latest Music Bar,
14 – 17 Manchester Street, Brighton, BN2 1TF

Later on, more of Robert's work will be screened and projected at Club Spank's Fetish Weekend Ball - "The Menagerie" on Saturday night.

Date: 28/06/2014
Time: 21:00 - 03:30
Event Cost: In advance £20 or £22 on the door
Location: Latest Music Bar
14 – 17 Manchester Street, Brighton, BN2 1TF

A2 Posters of "The 3 UV Bums" Now Available

I have finally sourced superb quality heavyweight A2 250gsm silk posters of  "The 3 UV Bums" at a reasonable price. For £20 plus P&P (in a poster tube) you can now own your own poster of Robert's most poular work "The 3 UV Bums".

For The USA "The3 UV Bums" was probably not my best choice of title, perhaps the transatlantic version should be titled "The 3 Blacklight Booty"

P&P Delivery costs are £5 included to all mainland UK addresses, and for £15 for Mainland USA (whlst stocks last). Please  e-mail me about delivery to other addresses outside mainland UK / USA and I will calculate a delivery cost based on the size and weight of your order.

The 3 UV Bums

(Please note woodburning stove and bricks in the image are not included!)



For those of you wondering what the difference is in a signed limited edition and an open edition, here's the difference.:

Signed Limited Editions are printed only using the finest pigment inks, using 8-11 different colours on acid-free rag heavyweight art papers. If treated correctly will last into three figures of years. The are limited to a certain number of prints of an size on any medium, so an A3 print and a six foot high canvas would count as two editions. Earlier editions are generally cheaper and the later more expensive. They come with signed Certificates of Authenticity directly from the photographer upon proof of purchase. Bespoke commissions can be made to exact sizes and on particular materials.

Open edition prints are printed with dye based inks on normal high quality photo paper, they are not individually signed and last less long without a shift in colour tonality or contrast. They are available in smaller sizes and as posters.

Robert Babylon at Seattle Erotic Art Festival

This year we are proud to include Robert Babylon's erotic artwork amongst the Visual Artists whose work our jury has selected to appear in this year’s Festival

Robert Babylon at SEAF

“The Seattle Erotic Art Festival supports a vibrant creative community, promotes freedom of expression, and fosters sex-positive culture through public celebration of the arts.” -Seattle Erotic Art Festival Mission Statement

It began with a desire to showcase stunning erotic art. To create a place to celebrate, discuss and support pieces that were rarely seen in mainstream galleries and museums. We dreamed of sexy people in a lush environment devouring amazing art; of an event that joyfully encouraged people to be as open and expressive as they wanted to be. And we brought it to life.

The first Seattle Erotic Art Festival was produced in 2003 by the Sex Positive Community Center (now the Foundation for Sex Positive Culture). A jury of local artists selected hundreds of pieces of art that were enjoyed by more than 1,000 art patrons.

This year (Our 12th Anniversary) we return to the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall, an amazingly beautiful venue, where we can expand our offerings in all Festival categories of art.

Come peruse our world-class visual art gallery and shop in our museum-quality Festival Store. Admire dazzling performances and engage with interactive installations. Enjoy our erotic short film exhibition and captivating literary art. Attend enlightening lectures, workshops, and art tours. And indulge in so much more at this spectacular celebration.

Las Vegas WEEKLY reports that ‘12 Inches of Sin’ returns to Sin City Gallery

12" of Sin Erotic Art

Featuring “UV Liquid Gold” by Robert Babylon as their promotional image the "12" of Sin Exhibition" can be seen at the Sin City Gallery in Las Vegas. Following a spectacular opening reception on 3rd April (with the party artwork also by Robert Babylon) the exhibition itself runs through to May 18, Wednesday-Saturday, 1-7 p.m. Sin City Gallery, Arts Factory, 608-2461.

Sin City Gallery, Las Vegas’ home to erotic art, opens its third-annual 12 Inches of Sin exhibit April 3, featuring works plucked from 250 entries from 18 countries, each abiding by the same rule: 12 inches or less. Along with its sidekick exhibit, Le Salon des Refusés du Péché, the show—which only requires work to be no larger than 12 inches in any dimension—celebrates sexuality in all forms, positions, media, viewpoints and camera angles.

Painting, sculpture, photography and cartoon illustrations tap into the humorous, sentimental, abruptly literal and political. Even C-3PO from Star Wars makes an appearance, in an acrylic-on-canvas painting by Poland’s Janusz Orzechowski, who has the droid eyeing a line of nude female mannequins. It’s an event that awarded its first Best in Show to Allan Teger’s “Mountain Climber,” a black-and-white photograph from Teger’s Bodyscapes series of tiny climbers scaling a woman’s breast. Jeff Wack’s photo/digital painting “Oceana” was the Best in Show winner for 2013. And this year’s Best in Show award went to JP Rakehorn of London for his mixed-media “Double Cross,” featuring a couple in an emotionally tormented embrace.

"Far From Grey" Exhibition at Harmony in Soho, London

After a popular "Meet the Artist" evening at Harmony's 3rd "boutique" store at 99a Charing Cross Road Robert's unique, beautiful and extremely sexy artwork will adorn the walls and be available for sale and to order until the end of June.

April 3, 2014 by Nicci Talbot


“Fancy some saucy pics to go with with your vibrator, madam?”

Tonight is sex shop Harmony’s first foray into erotic art – a ‘meet the artist evening’ with Robert Babylon at their new boutique in Charing Cross Road. The aim is to provide a little sensory stimulation to fuel your fantasies while you shop…

‘Far from Grey’ is Robert’s biggest exhibition to date. His award-winning neon art work has been featured in the likes of SkinTwo and Jade magazines and he has exhibited around the world, including a solo exhibition at the World Erotic Art Museum on South Beach, Miami. In 2012 two pieces of his work were added to the permanent collection of Dr Naomi Wilzig – the fourth largest collection of fine art erotica in the world.

So it’s great to see he’s back in Soho, which is well known for its liberal sexual attitudes, though currently having a hard time of it with police raids and closures of various massage parlours.

“Having my work and my name on display in Soho, which some might say is the original sex capital of the world, is a great plus for me. My work is designed to appeal to all genders and sexualities and I have always believed that erotica should be enjoyed by everyone. By displaying in Harmony’s Soho store I hope it will enable people unfamiliar with erotic art work to get a taste for it and offer regular visitors to Soho a chance to see something new.”

Well it would be rude not to with affordable erotic art starting at £25 and gift cards from £4.

"Far From Grey" Solo Exhibition at Harmony Store in Soho, London

Harmony's new boutique store on the edge of Soho (99a Charing X Rd) will be offering a new dimension to their customers' fetish fantasies with the opening of 'Far From Grey' on Tuesday 1st April, an exhibition by erotic photographer and artist Robert Babylon.

Robert's unique, beautiful and extremely sexy artwork will adorn the walls and be available for sale and to order for the next two months. His award winning neon artwork has been exhibited and published around the world, including a solo exhibition at the World Erotic Art Museum on South Beach, Miami USA and in 2012 two pieces of Robert's work were added to the permanent collection of Dr Naomi Wilzig - the 4th largest collection of fine-art erotica in the World.

There will be a “Meet the Artist” evening on Thursday April 3rd from 17:00 to about 21:00. Please RSVP to attend (and for further information) to Rose Crompton, rose@harmonyuk.com 07786068341.

Far From Grey Exhibition at Harmony Store

Speaking about the upcoming display, Robert said: “My work is designed to appeal to all genders and sexualities and I have always believed that erotica should be enjoyed by everyone. By displaying in Harmony's Boutique Soho store I hope it will enable people unfamiliar with erotic art work to get a taste for it and offer regular visitors to Soho a chance to see something new.”

Hosting art exhibitions is a first for Harmony, but Simon Pope, buyer for the brand, believes mixing erotic art with intimate items is a formulae that can't fail: “We sell personal items designed to physically arouse and simulate. Good erotic art is all about stimulating the mind and imagination to get lovers in the mood, which Robert's work certainly manages to achieve. Combining the physical and the fantasy makes perfect sense and is why hosting an exhibition and selling high-quality erotic art in Harmony works so well. We're very excited about displaying Robert's work.”

Exhibiting "UV Liquid Gold" at SinCity Gallery in Las Vega

12 Inches of Sin

The 12 Inches of Sin Art Exhibition has announced the winners of this years international juried art exhibition. SinCity Gallery created 12 Inches of Sin and Le Salon Des Refusés Du Péché exhibitions as an expansion of its presentation of artwork that displays exceptional quality, inventiveness, and wit. SinCity Gallery in Las Vegas was voted amongst the best 25 galleries in America in the 2013 American Art Awards.

Entries were received from 250 Artists from 18 Countries and Robert Babylon's work "UV Liquid Gold" has been awarded a place in the Le Salon Des Refusés Du Péché section of the exhibition.

12 Inches of Sin features sophisticated, intelligent, witty and provocative artworks from around the world. The juried exhibition explores eroticism and sensuality through the lens of contemporary art, with one twist:  every piece submitted for consideration must not be larger than one foot square. This constriction of the art’s physical space creates a tension within the art itself, expanding the challenge inherent in each piece’s creation.

The exhibition fosters fresh and exciting work by both new and established artists, and provides art patrons with the opportunity to secure works of art from prestigious and emerging artists that embody both the cutting edge of today’s contemporary art world and the vast breadth of artistic expression.

Robert's work and an interview also feature's in Rude magazine - the full article can be found online at http://www.rudemagazine.co.uk/culture/robert-babylon-neon-dreams.php.
Rude Magazine

Robert is particularly proud to be included in Rude magazine as it is not just another women's 'sex' magazine, it's manifesto:

  • A rather different women’s magazine…
  • We aim to step away from the traditional women’s magazine format with its narrow focus on celebrity, weight, fashion, beauty and home and explore our inner lives and what it means to be a woman.
  • Rude is a celebration of femininity and power, a platform for different voices, and a means of supporting each other rather than knocking each other down.
  • Our key values are storytelling, community, curiosity, passion, pleasure, independence and humour.

Robert Babylon's Neon Dreams at Sh! through September

After a sunny seaside exhibition at the Brighton Fetish Weekend I will be exhibiting my UV and traditionsl artwork at the Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium in Hoxton Square, London throughout the whole of September. Sh! is the UK’s first ever sex shop for women, opened in 1992 as an antidote to sleazy male-orientated shops. The vision was simple: to create a safe, welcoming environment in which women can shop guilt-free for good quality playthings. 

Neon Dreams by Robert Babylon

I am very proud that I have more women than men on my client list, my vision is to offer fine art erotica that celebrates and individualises the models rather than degrading them and provides erotica that women can enjoy as much as men.

Sh! is staffed by an all-female team who create a comfortable atmosphere and sensitively advise on sex toys, sexual pleasure and safe sex whatever their customers’ age, sexual persuasion, background or culture. Time out named it "The Best Sex Shop for Women" and ranked it in the 100 top shops in London. The Sh! mission is to enhance & celebrate sexuality which is why no ‘realistic’, blow-up, unsafe or low-quality toys make the Sh! stock list and Cert 18 porn is female-made.

You are invited to read the fabulous customer reviews by clicking here. The 12 inches of Sin Vol II book has been published and is available through Amazon.

Side Note and Interesting Tidbit:

The publisher went through a few interesting censorship hurdles to create these art catalogs. Click here to read the full article.  It's a wonderful read and demonstrates how large corporations can control what we can view.

Robert Babylon's artwork is available through Sin City gallery in Las Vegas. Sin City Gallery has been named 'Best Gallery' in Nevada.

Images in Two Consecutive Issues of Jade Magazine

JADE exists to promote and foster new and established talent from the erotic art world. The ethos of the magazine is to present to a wider, mature and appreciative audience both new and established talents in the world of erotica for the pleasure and enjoyment of both men and women.

Jade Magazine

Issue 100 was a centenary celebration publication featuring a cornupcopia of photographs from all the photographers appearing in the previous 99 issues of this unique monthly magazine featuring uncensored adult erotica. Two of my images appear in this issue.

Issue 101 showcases a whole portfolio of my work, a retorospective of images from across the years of my contributions to this monthly celebration of male and female eroticism.

Jace Magazine

JADE was launched in 2001 as a printed publication and is the only erotica magazine published in the UK (by a small, fully independent publisher) to be awarded membership of The Guild of Erotic Artists. It has consistently improved, moving from 48 pages when it began to 76 pages in 2007. It has established itself as the magazine of choice for intelligent and mature readers, both men and women, seeking genuine erotic content rather than porn and wall-to-wall sex adverts. In April 2008, at the start of its 7th year, JADE moved to a monthly, full colour, high resolution, 60+page, PDF download format and the printed version ceased production after 40 issues.

Solo Miami Exhibition Opening a Great Success

Jade erotic art magazine

The opening of my solo exhibition "Neon Lights" Miami's World Erotic Art Museum was a great success. The event was hosted by Dr. Naomi Wilzig one of the World's preeminent collectors of fine-art erotica. I was fortunate to be able to attend the event in the company of many friends along with both press and public to view this collection of what The Miami Huffington Post described as, "featuring photography that mixes the psychedelic with the feminine physique. Whether ropes, neon-colored fishnets or dripping latex paint, colors glow under ultraviolet lights and hug the curvature of blue models’ breasts, behinds and nether regions in a tantalizing series of images."

Read the press release (opens in a second window).

Jade erotic art magazine

The Miami New Times reported: "If there are two things South Beach does well, it’s color and skin... so it only makes sense that Robert Babylon’s exhibit “Neon Lights” would land in South Beach. A mix of retro pin-up sensibility and 1980s aesthetic, the works feature scantily clad women wearing fetishy pieces such as fishnets and tutus — all of which nearly jump off the page in fluorescent bursts... we all know the real spiritual homeland of these images is Miami Beach."

The exhibition remains on display at the museum until the end of June. Further information can be found at www.weam.com

Dr. Wilzig is acknowledged as one of the nation's preeminent collectors of erotic art and has personally curated this exhibition. Further information can be found at www.weam.com.

Read the press release (opens in a second window).

Jade erotic art magazine

“Without a doubt Robert's most amazing and unique work is his UV work, every one I show it to loves it, it’s where he really stands apart form the others and it’s very safe to display as its sexual messages are very subtle. His images have a unique and very visual power, they leap away from the conventional, especially the amazing colours he generates with the use of UV. I think he is very much a master of this very 21st century erotic art.”

Robert Babylon - Erotic Artist of the Year - Awards Review

This Event Day was a busy and important date for The Guild at Beaumont Hall Studios as it saw the first of the JADE Erotic Artists Awards presented by Guild model Rebekka Raynor on behalf of the Editor of JADE magazine.

First the two worthy runners-up, photographer David Hare and artist Karen Middleton were invited to receive their framed certificates to loud applause from the audience of fellow members, visitors and guests. The winner of the 2009 award was then invited to the stage where photo artist Robert Babylon, dressed in black leather kilt, received his framed certificate and the specially commissioned white kneeling sculpture (created by Ken Clarke for JADE). Along with the very loud and continued applause as he was presented with the impressive and now much coveted award there were calls from the audience for a speech. Robert, in the finest tradition of award speeches, gave an emotional but genuine and heartfelt vote of thanks to his wife Caroline, who he said had supported him throughout his career and without whom he would not be where he was today. There was more applause as he left the stage a very proud and happy man, and a deserving winner of the first ever JADE Erotic Artist of the Year Award.

Erotic UV Images at ENLIGHTENMENT Exhibition

Here's news of an exhibition featuring my images that's closer to 'home' (for some of you at least)... in Milton Keynes. ENLIGHTENMENT is an exhibition of work and workshops by ’The Association of Erotic Artists’. This is your chance to see work by some of the world’s leading erotic artists.

Enlightenment erotic art exhibition

’The Association of Erotic Artists’ is set to embark upon an evangelical mission of ENLIGHTENMENT of which this exhibition is but a start. We seek to challenge society's bigoted and misguided opinions of the nature, relevance and standing of erotic art and make a stand against social, political and religious condemnation.

A range of my UV images will be on display both as limited edition fine-art prints and as projections.

I've also updated my website recently with a whole load of new images in new style image galleries which are brighter and (hopefully) easier to use along with a news section.

Here's what Jade magazine had to say about my work:

"We can think of no more deserving recipient of this year's award than photo-artist Robert Babylon, whose work has developed and improved over the last few years and whose quality is always first class. His rich, artistic vision pushes at the boundaries of erotic art and explores the subject with a passion and skill which singles him out as a leader in the field, taking on new challenges and creating new works of art that set themselves apart from the mainstream. It is our hope that this award reflects the high regard in which this artist is held and that it will be just one of many he will receive throughout his career."

UV Art on Euston Tube Station

Just to let you know that my work has been accepted for exhibition on the London Underground. The exhibition has been organised through www.artbelow.org.uk who's aim is to "Turn Ad Space Into Art".

The first piece "3 UV Bottoms #1" will be put in place somewhere between 18th-22nd October and displayed for approximately two weeks at Euston Station -Northern Line Platform 6 Southbound [City Branch].

Underground Erotic Art

Truly Underground Erotic Art

Digital artist Robert Babylon’s erotic art has finally arrived on the main line under a scheme where art organisers www.artbelow.org.uk help artists display their work on international underground transport systems. Art Below, who have just completed an exhibition on the Tokyo Underground have awarded space to display the work of the fetish and erotic artist Robert Babylon on the London Underground.

Under a scheme which ‘turns ad space into art’ Robert Babylon’s acclaimed ‘3 UV Bottoms” has been turned into a 1.5m high poster for display alongside the more traditional commercial range of billboards.

The subterranean public display of Babylon’s work is somehow quite appropriate for this underground digital artist who’s work has, in the past, been more at home in venues like London’s Amora Academy in Piccadilly or the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas.

Some who recall Babylon’s work being removed from the wall of a London gallery after fears that his images would upset certain religious groups or on another occasion being seized from the walls during a police raid might even consider this a brave move by Art Below. However Babylon’s work is more usually outrageously colourful than offensive and unusually for the usual perception of erotic work, is most popular amongst a female audience.

The chosen piece ‘3 UV Bottoms’ comes from a series of work entitled ‘The Fluoro Girls’ featuring the bottoms of three young women wearing UV reactive fishnet tights. The fishnet material glows in stunning contrast to the strange blue skin-tones created by the UV lighting under which the series was created.

The poster can be viewed in it’s intended location at London Underground’s Euston station from 22nd October for two weeks

Permanent Exhibition in Las Vegas

My work is being permanently exhibited at the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas. The museum is artistic and sexy but in particular is about educating people to the erotic arts. The work includes the Alice collage below as well as a selection of my UV work.
