Natalia Fabia: sexy girls

Natalia Fabia Inspired by light, color, punk rock music, hot chicks and sparkles, Fabia is fascinated with “hookers”, which fuels her paintings of sultry women. (A bit NSFW)

Really nice, in some of these paintings she absolutely captures that look a prostitute gives a man, not come hither -- though it's that, too -- but it's more aggressive than that, more like "Hey, I know what you want and I've got it and I can give it to you right here right now, pronto. I'm right here." while looking you dead on, straight in the eye, no bullshitting around. It's a hell of a look, many whores have it and more than a few dancers have it, too, though they are a bit more subtle about it maybe; Fabia seems to understand that look, and sees it, and captures it, too.

I like what she's doing, her fascination with prostitutes, in its way reminds me of Toulouse-Lautrec, obsessed with beautiful women and able to give them to us clearly.

Thanx for posting here, a nice way to start my Friday morning.
