"BEAU" (KEVIN KING 1959- )

"Everyone Wins."
Illustration published in Advocate Men, 1997. Gouache on Arches paper. 585x430 mm; 23x17 inches on 30x22 1/4-inch sheet. Captioned and Signed "Beau `97" in lower right margin.

Provenance: Acquired directly from the artist by current owner, private collection, Los Angeles, California.
A Hollywood-based artist, BEAU was born in Oakland, California and studied art and costume design at the University of California, Berkeley before moving to Hollywood where he worked as a costume designer for television, film, and theatre. After a magazine editor spotted his erotic art, he was convinced to expand his efforts under a pseudonym. BEAU's work, saturated in color and reminiscent of American realist painting, has appeared in various publications and media, including Advocate Men, Freshmen, and Torso.
