Mitchell’s A-Z of Fetish Artists - Esposito


Esposito is one of the ‘old school’ of artists and is quite well known for his pulp fiction covers,
like the detail below.


He employs a variety of styles ranging from softly naturalistic representations to highly stylistic images almost like woodcuts combining hard lines and strong patterns.


He sometimes draws freely on Tom of Finland for inspiration in both his figure drawing (as above) and his compositions which may include complete Tom images as details - sometimes even reworking complete Tom pictures.

However, he does have his own distinctive style as in ‘The Coach’ (below).


The tent is a bit racy for this blog but it is one of those memorable images and shows the power of drawings compared with photos. The fetishism here is mild but Esposito has produced harder stuff - even snuff stuff
