Subversive Beauty on Ryan’s Wall My Life 17 DEC 2009

subversive-beauty-cover-luis-royoRyan keeps talking about nipple tassels at the moment, and if you wondering why, well I’m afraid the reason lies squarely at my feet. I was out shopping with him yesterday as he needed to pick up some much needed artwork for his rather bare walls, and as such had already picked out a nice, fairly macabre Dali framed print to do the job.

However, not that impressed with his choice, I proceeded to scout around and instead found this fantastic bit of fantasy artwork courtesy of the famed Spanish master, Luis Royo, taken from his book of illustrations, Subversive Beauty.

It didn’t take much arm twisting, but the end result is that Ryan walked out clutching this print under his arm and it now proudly sits in the lounge on the wall above his telescope.

Needless to say, I’m not quite sure what Michelle is going to say about this one! :P

As for the picture itself, why after a quick Internet search, I proudly present Ryan’s latest acquisition and source for many a future comment and joke:


Oh, and in case you’re wondering just who this legendary fantasy artist is, hit the related link below! :)
