The Many Men in Michael Breyette's Life
"My passion is the nude male body, and that is what I choose to draw" - Michael Breyette
According to Michael Breyette's Facebook page, he's just a guy who likes to draw and paint guys and hopefully make the world a little more joyful, hopeful and beautiful along the way. Judging from the favorable response to his work, I think the talented man is reaching his goal.
Never in a million years did Breyette ever dream that he would one day earn his living as an artist and publicly display his pastel paintings of sensual male beauty. But today his work has been published in a book, Summer Moved On, as well as in calendars, magazines, anthologies of erotic art, and on the covers of several novels. And now he's returning to Lyman-Eyer Gallery in Provincetown, MA, where he had a successful solo debut last summer. Breyette's The Breathtaking Blue exhibit, which will feature new originals and prints, runs from July 10 - 22 with an opening night reception on the 10th from 7-9 pm.
So if you're visiting Provincetown in July, be sure to stop by for a closer look at Michael Breyette's amazing work. And for further information, check out his website, www.breyette.com, and his blog, Left in the Dust.
I leave you now with a few words from the handsome artist himself--and, of course, some of his sexy men:
"As much as I may find a sunset, waterfall or glass skyscraper beautiful, I find that same kind of beauty in a shirtless guy. For me, the male body is a true work of art."
