A Brief Look: The Art of Keith P. Rein

There’s this dude on the internet who makes art and it’s pretty great stuff. It’s exciting when that happens. Stumbling through blogs and the newest Instagrams, Tumblrs, and whatnots and what-have-yous and there it is — something awesome.

The work of Keith P. Rein is striking — yes, there is violence and there is nudity, but the sex and violence is mocking and light. It’s well crafted sex and violence. His piece ‘Bombs Away’ only feels explicit, but in fact it’s just a girl enjoying three frozen treats. It’s taking porn and sexuality and filtering it through an absurdist Chuck Jones-era Looney Tunes world.

I don’t know Keith P. Rein and his site the delightfully named The P Is For Penis doesn’t have any contact information. Only a single page with a few images and a link to his Etsy Store.

It’s refreshing to find an artist who makes it difficult to contact them. I’m sure I could follow a rabbit hole of links to track him down, and maybe I will at some point, but for now why don’t we just take a gander at a few of his wonderful paintings —
