From Vagina to Rihanna

Last November (’12) Ellen DeGeneres had a personal conversation with the Pop singer Rihanna’s vagina about her non-existence relationship with men.

But if, Rihanna has posed nude for one of Philadelphia’s master artist Valera Iskhakov, her vagina would have no time for a break. In fact, Valera has painted many a vagina but his work goes far beyond the esthetic beauty of the female nude. Valera as he is known in the Philadelphia art community, drills down the essence of divine feminine in most of his work.

Valera is a professional artist with over 20 years experience in
painting, drawing, sculpture, teaching, theatrical makeup and hair design. Valera work has been featured at the following fine art institutions:

Foundation Demidoff, Montreal, Canada
International Art Festival, Montreal, Canada
ArtExpo, Los Angeles ‘ 98
ArtExpo, New York ‘ 98
Agora Gallery, SOHO, New York, N.Y
Art Gallery, Saloniki, Greece
Art Gallery, Switzerland, Geneva
East Art Gallery, Moscow, Russia.

So Rihanna as you are making plans for Valentine’s Day, if you are every alone again, bring your vagina to Dalet Ar Gallery on 2nd street in Old City Philadelphia to Valera OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA and let’s get busy.
