MetArt in 2017: our artists

In 2017 a total of 1,472 postings of photosets and movies appeared on MetArt. 48 different artists contributed, from the most-featured, Matiss, with 217 appearances (see his pic of Genevieve Gandi above) to six artists who had just one appearance each during the year. An average of 29 artists appeared each month. Only ten artists appeared in all twelve months.

As Rose posted in September, we lost our second longest tenured artist when Slastyonoff passed away in 2017. He had debuted as an artist on June 28, 2003. If you’re wondering, the current longest tenured artist is Natasha Schon, who debuted on June 22, 2002. (In the “Archive” section dates don’t appear so all of this is based on our history as it appears now).

On the brighter side, 2017 saw the introduction of seven new artists. A notable new arrival was Alis Locanta, and while this was his first year to appear on MetArt, debuting on New Year’s Day, he is an award-winning director for the Network with his movies on SexArt, where he has been in residence since 2012, and is also a regular contributor to MetArt X, The Life Erotic and Viv Thomas. Another MetArt newbie of note is Tora Ness, who since her debut on April 16 has had 48 postings, and is still climbing in her personal rating.

The artist ratings are fun for a stat hound such as myself. In the current top ten, at the time of writing, we have six who have contributed new work this year: Antonio Clemens, Erro, Arkisi, Catherine, Rylsky and Leonardo. It’s interesting to see the new artists as they start to acquire a following, and also to browse for artists who are no longer active.

Rylsky is currently the most published artist. Since his debut on May 17, 2006, he has featured 1,596 times to date, quite an achievement! In 2017 he had 123 photosets and movies featured.  

Not all artists are full time photographers who specialize in nudes, or in fact any professional photo work, for their primary living income. They come from many different backgrounds, and live in many different parts of the world. However, they do have one thing in common, apart from an appreciation of the female form; every artist I have ever met invests their ego into their work, be it painting, photography, sculpture, even performance art, they are expressing their vision through their artistry. In my opinion, what makes MetArt unique is the variety we get from having so many different artists contributing work. My hope for 2018 is that more members will embrace this variety and try to respect each individual artist for sharing their personal vision with us.

    Our friend Frank has already wrote some background information about this set which I'll quickly complement.
    This was my last shooting last year, in September, in the Netherlands. Lisa spent a few days with me and Niemira for a nice and relaxing shooting session of 4-5 days, to allow them take a look around and rest from their travels. It was really a good time despite the weather wasn't great all the time, but the house was big and comfortable and the girls had time to take breaks as I was shooting them alternatively.
    Lisa is a really sweet girl, as Frank wrote already, in person looks much more at ease and smiles often, but on camera she gets into a different mood, more serious and focus on her eroticism. Her body is simply perfect as seen on photos, and she has flawless skin and long smooth blond hair.
    I have already submitted two more sets with Lisa and also a few with Niemira from that session, looking forward to have it published and comment it with you..
    This weekend I shoot a brand new model from the USA, I hope you will see our work together soon here and that it's the start of a long story with her and Metart.
    Thank you all for taking the time to comment and spend nice words for Lisa and our work together!

    Ciao mio caro NVKM,
    I was waiting for your flattering words for both the model and my work, and here you are!
    Your words are the perfect match for the images of our little Mona Lisa.
    Buona notte a te..

    A seriously beautiful woman in spite of the photographer hardly seeming to have noticed.

    Yet another beauty from the Tora Ness portfolio and Lena is simply lovely...….. Anyone see any similarities with the work that my beloved Catherine produced, and will hopefully one day produce again ?

    My feeling perfectly! Scribbling all over a woman's body does nothing but deface nature's perfection. Man could never improve on what god created and to me it does nothing but devalue a woman!

    Oh! Maestro!

    What a captivating Work You present us this time!
    We go beyond the limits of visual art.
    I can almost feel the delicate perfume that is poured into the air.
    I hope the intoxicating scent of the Model's body that satisfies our thirsty senses
    it is not covered by the artificial one contained in the bottle.
    What a Splendid Maiden Lisa is! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
    The marvelous blue setting highlights the whiteness of her skin
    and the blond of her flowing hair.
    We are all kidnapped by the unparalleled Beauty of Lisa.
    I heartily thank You, dear Davi... ♥♥♥

    Good Night...and Dreams full of sensual scent...
