Milo Manara

Milo’s Human History is a uncensored and unforgiving look at our history and the constant pattern of sex and violence throughout it. The piece looks at how we continue along the same cycle and how, unlike the unfiltered versions of history you are given as a child, the real life version is much more brutal. I love the unforgiving reality Milo gives to this piece as usually I find myself a bit put off by the hyper sexualised women he draws. Who, although painted, I believe via watercolour, superbly tend to be there as fantasy fulfilment to a heterosexua, male centric audience.
