“A Celebration of the Male Form: Gay erotic oils and charcoal”

Jonathan Blount is a native Philadelphian. He began to pursue his artistic disposition during high school. At first, Jon decided to develop his creativity by becoming a pastry chef but he soon realized that he needed to change from cake to canvas.

Jon’s early oils were expressions of his inner voice, translating what he was feeling and hearing internally into paint. As Jon matured, he realized that he loved painting and drawing the male form. He describes his approach to artistically rendering the male form as starting with shadow and working into the light.
