There’re some strong thunderstorms coming through right now. At least the temperatures cooling down a bit after the heat wave. I joined out and out and I am looking forward to doing some camping sometime in July. And I maybe we’ll go to Goldenlake again up in Québec to do some waterskiing. xo Victor

Hot hot hot…

I’m somehow trying to survive the heat wave that we’re experiencing here in Toronto. It’s absolutely ridiculous Hot Hot Hot here up here and cool in New York. How wierd! I went to Montréal last weekend to have some fun and fortunately a very short trip so I didn’t put a big dent in my budget. Before Montréal I went to a Newmindspace event with Kevin Bracken that led me to an art installation called the encampment which is really cool. Mapattack was lots of fun and I enjoyed exploring Toronto with Newmindspace.  Just back from an Out and Out meetup and ready to crash… Catch you later… xo Victor

My toronto play station

Filed under: Editorial,General,Portraits — Artflux at 1:45 pm on Friday, June 15, 2012



This week I managed to find a really great deal on craigslist for a new desk. It’s designed and built by a Canadian company called global Woodgroup. It’s really nice red mahogany color and sees me perfectly for my Play Station. Moving was a little bit of a chore, but I managed with the zip car and little elbow grease to put together. The weather here is been really cool and comfortable just about 60F in the mornings and pleasantly in the low 70s during the day. I’ve been going to the gym every morning and working out as well as during hot yoga sessions my favorite being on Fridays. It’s really good start today and gets me geared up for things. This weekend I’ll be heading to Montréal again for little R&R. I’ll post some pictures along the way.

Seattle erotic arts festival

Some of my work will be featured this weekend at the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival.

Here’s the info.

Seattle Erotic Arts

“The installation builds momentum and explodes at its conclusion…”

This installation is wide, and through photographs, paintings, and a monitor displaying hundreds of digital images, it will demonstrate the revolutionary change which took place across this 60 year period.
Many people are unfamiliar with the severe restrictions imposed upon photographers in the mid-century. These artists were often threatened, sometimes jailed, and all were forced to share their work in the most limited manner.

Beginning with George Quaintance’s photography and paintings, through the “posing strap” era of Bob Mizer/AMG and others such as the Western Photography Guild, the images morph into what is available today.

The installation begins with some early black and white images (many from a private collection), which are stunning in their simplicity.

Significant moments are noted, such as the late 1960s when the U.S. Postal Service dropped its restrictions on frontal nudity being sent in the mail. This moment alone was a game-changer: the posing straps (shown in the image above) came off once and for all, and gay erotic photography changed forever.
But it wasn’t just the dropping of the posing straps: technology changed. The forbidden images became available to all. Images which were once only imagined or viewed in private are now accessed by and available to nearly everyone.

The installation builds momentum and explodes at its conclusion as it flashes hundreds of images of the men Jim has known and photographed over the last ten years, representing the current stage of proliferation and freedom in gay erotic art and images.

I received a surprise call from Scott Covert of club 57 notoriety and fame. It was nice catching up to him with him and talking about publishing some pictures that I taken of the bad seed the Andy Reese production. Anyway long story short the negatives are in storage unfortunately,  so I will do my best to retrieve them. After I headed out to pick up a zipp car to move a desk that I found on craigslist! So it’s all moved in and the only thing is I need some help assembling it and deciding where to put it. It’s been hot hot hot here in Toronto. So I am actually turning on the AC. Bye for now time for a glass and music then get dinner. Xo Victor

Near Death Experience, Show and Montreal

Filed under: Editorial,General,Portraits — Artflux at 1:40 pm on Tuesday, June 5, 2012


Biking home from the gym I was tail ended by an suv!! The impact knocked the wind out of me as well as the back tire and rim which was twisted out of shape. There was an Australian woman passer by who gave me her card should I need to contact her. It was clearly his fault.  I was ok with just a little bruise on my right knee.  The whole ordeal left me a little upset, but after meeting the driver and exchanging contact information he offered to give me a ride home as the bike was unrideable. Today  I was extra careful out on the roads. I’m still a litle shaken up by the whole thing and guess it might be another NDE chalked up for me.  I fell asleep watching the Golden Jubilee concert awaking at the crack of dawn for hot yoga.  The bike will be in the shop for about a week and the guy has offered to pay for the repairs.  I’m using my alternate Gary Fisher mountain bike for now.  This week Community Supported Agriculture starts.  I’m looking forward to getting some farm fresh produce weekly as I had been doing in NYC over past years. I’m thinking about going to Montreal for the weekend. Some of my work will be on exhibit at City Lights in an exhibit called SAMESEX, 37 Markle Court, Bridgeport, CT Opening Thursday June 7 5 to 6pm for members and free afterwards.

June 7-July 12, 2012

The intention of this exhibit is to provide common ground for artists and visitors of diversebackgrounds to come together to view, enjoy, discuss or be exposed to art about being Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual or Transgender. Sexual orientation was not a prerequisite for artists in this exhibit. All were welcome to submit work that interpreted the theme. The term SameSex is a politically charged, somewhat sterile or safe term, referring to gay rights, marriage and equality. But the art in this exhibit is not sterile. It is flamboyant, funny, beautiful, provocative, surprising and at times tragic. This exhibit contains adult subject matter, parental discretion required.
