ABOUT THE COLLABORATION
avaf was offered rare and unrestricted access to Tom of Finland’s archive, and never-before free reign to crop, manipulate and morph his body of work with their visual language and codes. The result is a stunning and euphoric coalition between artists that although differ in terms of generation, backgrounds and aesthetic discourse, are protagonists of underground art and share the means of alternative platforms to celebrate and advocate for sexual freedom and tolerance in the spirit of inclusion without conclusion.
This collection is a seamless continuation of avaf’s application of cultural references and artifacts as participants in their work, and is the most vivid adaptation of the Finnish artist’s drawings to date, set to add a “multisensory splash and color overdrive” to the rainbow of Tom’s Men.
Part of the proceeds benefit Tom of Finland Foundation
