Erotic art lovers in Los Angeles should check out the Tom of Finland Art Fair, taking place this weekend. The festival is hosted at the TOM House in the hip neighborhood of Echo Park; Tom of Finland lived in the residence during the 1980s and early '90s, creating his famous erotic drawings there during the last decade of his life. The house is now the home of the Tom of Finland Foundation, "whose archives comprise the world's largest repository of erotic art."
Dozens of artists will showcase their works this weekend, including scultpture, photography, paintings, sketches, and digital renderings. Art workshops and panel discussions will also be held, as well as a reception at the TOM House on Saturday evening. Click here for more info and preview some of the pieces below:
