Kev Red’s Fantastic Sexy Valentine’s Day Cards

Michelle Mars Ph.D.

Are you looking for something new and inspired token for Valentine’s day?  Do you want to send something creatively saucy to your lover?  Do you want to send something anonymously? KevRed has the perfect Valentines Day Card for you.

After spending several hours looking at a tiled graphic on a T-shirt I finally realised I was looking at something sexual and it made me smile. Here is the history of KevRed’s ‘At Random’ Graphics.

Interview with the artist KevRed.

Michelle: I’m  researching at the moment for an article on sex and art. What is coming out in those articles is that  artists do express sexuality in art but most keep it in their own private collections. What made you want to show yours to the world?

I suppose because all the people I showed it to liked it and I like the idea of offering something to people who like to be a little risqué around town. I also like the idea that if the graphic is on a t-shirt it’s an overt sexual reference but it’s not offensive.

Michelle: I think your sexy graphics are playful and inspired . Where did you get the idea from?

Kev:  I was in Jet Bar in Wellington and it originally had a panel of frosted squares and I was waiting for a friend and the light was reflecting through the squares onto their clothing and I thought what a a cool idea for clothing. So I cut some squares into card and sprayed bleach onto some jeans and left them out over night. People kept saying ‘cool jeans where did you get them from’. That was in 2005 and I have been thinking about it off and on ever since.

Michelle: When I first saw your t-shirt it took me a little while to work out that it was a bit rude. Did you deliberately design them that way?

Yes, people ask me what does GTL stand for?  And I say ‘think picture’ and they get it right away.

Originally it was in white on black. But as the idea evolved I have included colour to depict the different sexualities .

Some people see it straight away and some people don’t.  It’s just the way it turned out and once you are in the frame of mind to see a sexual picture you get it straight away.

Some are more obvious that others but once you get the connotation it’s not too tricky.  The 69 graphic, for example makes sense straight away.

Michelle: It’s an inspired take on depicting sex in art. Many artists shy away from it and keep their sexual pictures in their private collections. Some people might call it pornographic. Are you comfortable with that?

Kev: Yes they are pornographic if you take every day sex positions to be pornographic.   I don’t expect anybody to be offended by them. There is so much out there that is in your face and this is intended to be light hearted and fun in a sexy way.

I am at ease with different sexualities,  I understand different sexualities and I wanted to express the wide spectrum of human sexuality.  I wanted it to be representative of the nature of the different sexualities we have in our community but not in an explicit or graphic way.  ‘At Random” is not intended to be offensive .
