Graffiti on scantily clad girls. Need we say more? Fine. "Fetish Bubblegirls" presents the work of internationally recognize graffiti artist Tilt in an unabashedly new, colourful, and playful volume. One could argue for a strong parallel that exists between the classic graffiti writing's extensive use of bubbly, curvaceous shapes and the female form. The French born graf writer obsessively explores these tensions and parallels as he explores the world in search of beautiful 'canvases' on which to execute his art. Although this mission straddles the globe, there is a common thread that emerges as the most striking detail of the project - the openness and balance between innocence and playfulness and sexuality and the highly charged environment that all of the models inhabit.
