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 It’s interesting to see the new artists as they start to acquire a following, and also to browse for artists who are no longer active.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.

    Lovely Genevieve: great to see you again. Here's hoping you set a New Year's resolution to go unshaven for 2019! As beautiful as you are, it's time to mix it up a bit.

    WOW. I think a first. We the viewers get a choice as to what we like better. Skin smoothing retouching or not. Good stuff. Overall portrait comment: skin blemishes are not attractive. Again good stuff.
