Mark Blanton draws classical figures in classical settings with an overt sexually erotic flavour. All of his work can be viewed at Satyronmania.
First, a little background. Where do you live and work?
I live and work near Houston, Texas in the US.
Where were you born?
I was born in Glendale, California near Los Angeles and moved away from there when I was still very young.
When did you discover you have a talent for art?
I can recall copying figures of nude statuary from the illustrations in a history of ancient Greece in my grandfather’s library when I was about five. I remember being puzzled about the use of the fig leaf and decided to remove them in my own drawings. My mother discovered what I was doing and took away my pencil and paper.
The artist is Mark Blanton
