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.
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.
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.
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.
This month’s issue of Jade magazine features a large portfolio of my UV images where a grand total of twenty four images over seventeen pages are deftly supported by an excellent and extensive biography.
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.
Selected Robert Babylon images are now available on hand-crafted, heavyweight cotton t-shirts printed with an individually cut design, making each t-shirt unique.

The Fluorescent colours all glow brightly under UV (neon / black light) and are great to wear at clubs and parties.
The Kickstarter Campaign to publish an elegantly curated four-volume set of books featuring all the erotic artwork from the last four years of the “12 inches of Sin” exhibition has reached and passed it’s $25,000 target. The four volumes feature 126 artists from 16 countries including several images by Robert Babylon.
“Wow, I am speechless… $25,000! I was not expecting this and I am overjoyed, grateful, proud, crying, dancing, and… you name it! I’m feeling it.
I am going to come up with more creative ideas so that pledges may still be fun and exciting! I must say, it is rather hard to top the double-entendre reward ideas, but I have 11 days to go to think of something.
Please keep pledging. Enjoy the rewards… and thank you for making a dream a reality.”
Laura Henkel Ph.D. of the Sin City Gallery in Las Vegas
Robert Babylon is personally supporting this campaign so that this series of Erotic Art catalogues can be published in all their glory. By joining the campaign you can help support the cause too and earn some wonderful treats at the same time.
The campaign has been launched to bring the collected winning works from four years of exhibitions and you can choose from a variety of rewards for helping this campaign to publish these books.
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.
