DELOS The painter of the gods, heroes and mythology
DELOS Male Nude art and Homoerotic Gay Art
DELOS is a French painter who mainly oriented his production towards the male nude. His choice is to reveal the naked male body as a work of art by itself and to sublimate it.
He has been painting since the age of 14 and draws his inspiration from mythology and from many sources such as the Italian painters Quattrocento or Ingres, Poussin, Velazquez, Vermeer, Magritte …
His works are made with very classic techniques of oil painting on canvas to which he gives this little personal touch that gives both the feeling of life, wonder and movement of these characters and sublime bodies.
The work of Delos is an invitation to travel in the antique myths were the cradle of our civilization and today still one of the foundations of our collective unconscious.
Curious travel, indeed, since it is the privilege of the creator, the freedom of the artist, to establish a choice whose options as the limits he gives to his private acropolis are chosen by virtue of his own aesthetic dreams.
