Introducing the Penile Papers, a new project masterminded by artist London-based artist Dominic Myatt. Working across a variety of different mediums, be it drawing, painting, printmaking or even tattoos, Myatt has always put the exploration of the sordid and sweet things surrounding sex at the forefront of his many creative endeavours. Having made his own community of like-minded creative powerhouses over the years, he decided to call on his fellow artists to contribute to the project, as well as a host of IT consultants, retail assistants, pub landladies and even a friend’s grandmother.
Dominic Myatt teases the first images from his new project.
Their only requirement was to draw a willy, big or small, perky or shrivelled – the type you’d deface your friend’s homework with, or leave on a school desk to stand the test of time against tired teachers and cash-strapped state school budgets. With 62 delicious dongs to feast on, the book itself, limited to 200 copies, is also the size of your average nob, and even rolls up into the shape of a phallus. Your coffee table will never be the same again…
All profits from the sale of the Penile Papers will be split equally between the Runnymede Trust (a race equality think tank) and the Terrence Higgins Trust (a HIV and sexual health awareness charity), two institutions Myatt holds close to his heart.
