Antonio Mendoza

[song by Shankar Barua]

We haven't ever featured such an artist on The IDEA in such a manner, without really interacting with and knowing the individual concerned, but we were pretty struck by the energy, immediacy and effervescence of Antonio's work when first sent some of his images by a friend (who'd found them on the net). As evident from the main page-backgrounds of an old website of his, ~repeated as background to this page too, behind this table,~ many of Antonio's images are too risque to be carried here without better reason than this, but we're delighted to reproduce a small (slightly censored) general collection below without being in touch with the man about it, in a salute to his anti-copyright signature reproduced across the table-background behind the pictures.
