Episode 7: Félix Frédéric d'Eon
I talk to Félix Frédéric d'Eon who updates us on his life in Mexico City. How his visits with his mom to the Huntington Library made an impression on his art. His queer revision of Edwardian and Art Nouveau styles. How the Internet sales on Etsy and Ebay supports his ability to sustain his artwork. The discipline of producing art and self-promotion on Instagram and social media. The uncensored glimpse into his soirees on Snapchat. His artistic process and we discuss the work Tattoo Lovers. I fanboy on his art Amour Nouveau and Amor Picante. Is Felix a nudist? We talk about Mae West and The Wedding of Gladys Bentley. He explains how the installation art of Félix González-Torres translates into his work. His early career as a male figure model. We geek out on the art of Michelangelo. We talk about the September 19th earthquake in Mexico City. What does it mean to be Chicano? How his work is inclusive to marginalized queer people. His outreach and research to appropriately incorporate other spheres of queer erotica into this art. Why he continues to make Pop art that is accessible and affordable. Find is work at felixdeon.com.
