Tom of Finland at the House of Illustration

Tom of Finland | Neue Luxury

Ok February is a miserable month pretty much everywhere but in London it is even worse. The wind was driving me crazy so I went to see Tom of Finland at the House of Illustration and let me tell you that made my seasonal depression blow away for a couple of hours.

When I look at his illustrations I think about the power of rebellion in his art. He produced images that where illegal at the time and have since became part of the iconography of western gay imaginary and culture.
