Antonio Rueda

was born in Seville, Spain.
Like many successful artists he did not have a formal education in painting, but was always artistic and painted a lot when he was a child. He had an education in Human resources and graduated in Art History in 2005.
He is multi talented as shown by his directorship for the theatre company 'ESCENA ABIERTA' from Seville, but his real passion lies with painting.
His work captures a great feel for a life of passion, eroticism under a hot Mediterranean sun.
He writes: "I think that homo-erotic art comes from the depths of the soul, where we show the truth plainly and without fear. Art is like a life, this is my philosophy. We must be consistent the art is expression of the emotions and to be able communicate with the people and make happy to them."
Antonio is influenced by artists that express themselves in vibrant colours and strong forms like: Paul Klee, MirĂ³, and Frida Kahalo. Influences such fashion, cinema, photography and theatre are essential in his work.

His interest also broadens to surrealism and symbolism, pop art and all contemporary gays paintings and artists. He organizes exhibitions for fellow artist with verve and passion.

Gio Black Peter

is quite a multi talented young New Yorker. Actually I think one doesn't need a lot of words here, just see (and hear) for yourself.

A random selection of his paintings:

Envoy Gallery: Gio Black Peter Images, Galleri s.e: Gio Black Peter, Artworks for sale online (2).

When he was about 15 years old he played 'Charley' in Eban and Charley (2000) [review: Grenoble international gay and lesbian film festival 2002]. More recent he played the role of 'Rudolf' in Otto; or, Up with Dead People (2008).
Peephole Confession:

In 2007 the "Black Peter Group" was formed and took the music scene by surprise.
It's fucked up (2008):

Their life performance is one of great vigour and energy and it seems hard for Gio to keep his clothes on during the gig. Really get what you pay for there. Maybe even more then you expected. There are a lot of clips on YouTube to psych you up for a 'concert'. More information at East Village Boys.
Upcoming events and current activities (in Europe) for Gio and his band are announced on his blog BLACK PETER WUZ HERE ...
or watch his pages on: FaceBook, MySpace, BlackPeterGroup on MySpace, Blogger, Twitter
