    About The Work

    This digital collage is an unprecedented collaboration between assume vivid astro focus and Tom of Finland Foundation, in which the contemporary artist duo, Eli Sudbrack and Christophe Hamaide Pierson, were given access to the Tom of Finland archive to morph the influential artist’s body of work with their visual language and codes. The result is a stunning and euphoric coalition between artists that—although different in terms of generation, backgrounds and aesthetic discourse—are protagonists of underground art and share the means of alternative platforms to celebrate and advocate for sexual freedom and tolerance in the spirit of inclusion without conclusion. This collage is part of a larger series of works and offers a seamless continuation of avaf’s application of cultural references and artifacts as participants in their work, and is the most vivid adaptation of the Finnish artist’s drawings to date, set to add a “multisensory splash and color overdrive” to the rainbow of Tom’s Men.
