Your Grindr Profile Could End Up In This Artist’s Portfolio (Or Maybe Already Has!)

Screen Shot 2014-10-31 at 9.13.33 AMAustralian artist Adam Seymour has cruised a hell of a lot of Grindr profiles, but when he taps “load more guys,” it’s more for inspiration than recreation.

He turns interesting profiles he comes across into watercolor paintings. It’s his way of exploring the private/public dynamic of broadcasting sexual desires across social media.

He told Buzzfeed: “We reveal our most wild, deviant, sexual, fantastical selves to the digital universe, for anyone to see, and yet, for some reason, maintain this subconscious expectation that only our desired audience will see it.”

Here’s some of his work, check out his website for more.
