Scooter LaForge, Artist
We all know that sex sells mascara, tabloids, cars, music, and hotels. That it sells art too, is something Scooter LaForge can tell you from experience.
Giant erections live happily with cuddly Little-Golden-Books-creatures, in a world that’s dark yet comical, figurative yet abstract, muddy yet bright. Scooter LaForge, painter/sculptor, is a man of dichotomies. He’s modest and soft-spoken in person, but certainly not too shy to pose for risqué photographs which find their way into the world through one of his X-rated tumblr blogs. Scooter’s studio is around the corner from me; in the midst of oil paint fumes, and surrounded by some canvases that had yet to find their way online, we talked.
