People use the term iconic a lot but there are a few figures who truly embody it. Tom of Finland, the artist born Touko Laaksonen, is certainly one. Over the span of his career he created works that influenced not only generations of queer artists that would follow him, but also popular culture. His work, in part, helped to set the visual blueprint for the leather community which still reveres him today. And now, 100 years after his birth, David Kordansky Gallery is putting on a digital exhibition featuring "never-before-exhibited drawings in pencil and pen and ink, as well as Tom's personal collages."
Flip through 14 works below and see the full exhibit on their site, available through May 12, here.
