The Art of Rob Bartell: A Truly Fairview

Not since Oliver Frey have I seen an erotic artist whose work I have admired as much as the Art of Rob Bartell. With Frey it was all about the facial expressions, such as of abandon during release, or surprise at an impending compromising position, and the perfect rendering of the body’s positions no matter the situation. But with Bartell, it is the reality and luminosity of the skin achieved as well as the added sensuousness of the lips, eyes, breasts, groins and buttocks on these god-like males that draws me in like a moth to a flame whether in a created personage or in a portrait. Did I mention that all of his subjects are gorgeous? It is difficult to imagine why Rob wasted his time (20 years!!!!) painting ducks. Silly artist! But let us look at some of his art and discuss his unique style in more detail…

In this piece, titled Brandon, Bartell was admittedly influenced by a recent trip to Hawaii. Brandon is a tropical wet dream come true. I feast on his sensuous brown eyes, his lips, his tiny nipples. I want stick my tongue in between his thick but soft lips and I want his strong arms to hold me tight and close to his enormous pectoral muscles so that I can smell the fragrant flowers in the lei around his neck. Then, I realize that he is only a digital painting. Shucks! Rob what are doing to me?


This one is titled Michel. I just want to run my hand up his glossy thigh and suck on his ample pendulous breast and nipple. Look at that lower lip! Doesn’t it scream to be eaten? Well, gnawed on at the very least. Maybe by then he would put his big hands on my… Well, shoot he is only a digital painting too? Rob! Why do all these fantasy men look so real and so damn hot??? I feel dizzy…

He has now completed a portrait of a famous person that we all know, and that one of us has a porn crush on (but I am not naming names), Francesco D’Macho. Feast your eyes. I must say, this is my favorite portrait of Francesco. Congratulations Rob! I think it captures Francesco’s dreamy blue eyes and demeanor perfectly.

Egad, what a hot body. No enhancements or need for added sensuality were made there, I can attest to that just by looking. Francesco is the embodiment of a hot sexual fantasy. Like a moth to a flame… feeling dizzy again… sigh… (Ah, Monsieur Sagat, Je suis très desolée! Il et á vous toujours.) .

What were we talking about? Oh yes, the Art of Rob Bartell. See what your art does to me? Bad artist! Anyway, I hope you hit the big time now that you have painted someone famous. You certainly deserve it. I can easily foresee your art developing a cult following similar to that of Tom of Finland and Oliver Frey sometime in the future if you keep at it.

So dear readers check out Rob’s art from his blog and you can also buy prints on Ebay for your more private enjoyment (if you know what I mean), or hire him to paint your own portrait and become part of history yourself!

Shaney - I hope you went to his site to see his other work. He really is amazing. I can totally see why Francesco chose him to do his portrait.
