Leather Cult by Rex
REX began illustrating the world of exclusively gay leather fetishism in the 1970’s, documenting and creating the images and ideas which were barely understood in their day, and are still at the borders of comprehension. This collection spans over four decades of his work.

Rex is a living American artist and illustrator closely associated with homosexual fetish art of 1970s and 1980s New York and San Francisco. He avoids photographs and does not discuss his personal life. His drawings influenced gay culture through graphics made for famous nightclubs including the Mineshaft and his influence on artists such as Robert Mapplethorpe. Much censored, he has remained a shadowy figure saying that his drawings "defined who I became" and that there are "no other 'truths' out there".
