366 Days of Men
Your Daily Male 2020 Calendar
It has become a tradition. For the fifth time, Your Daily Male, the only male-art tear-off calendar in the world, is being published by Galerie MooiMan in Groningen. In this edition, 52 international artists have once again contributed to a colorful book that weighs more than one kilo and is more than 4 cm thick, in which the man in art is every day subject. And 2020, a leap year, even comes with one extra man! The calendar has now been internationally awarded as the most beautiful male-art calendar in the world, yet it's forbidden on Facebook.
"It was a bit of a shock," says Jan van Stralen, co-founder of MooiMan male-art gallery, of being named the best male-art calendar by The Advocate last year.
Even though you can't shop or peek at the calendar on Facebook, which deems it too racy, you can take a look on the next pages and order it here.
Artem Korzh (Russia)
Artem Korzh is a Russian photographer. Some of the photo's in Your Daily Male were taken on March 8th, 2019. In St. Petersburg, this time of year is still quite cold and the snow around. The idea of the series was to show the mutual understanding and love of man and nature. Sometimes nature may not be quite comfortable for a person, but there is always a lot of everything beautiful in it.
David van der Linden (The Netherlands)
The young models, innocent and powerful in their physical expression, are beautiful to work with and to look at as an artist. The series "Boys Keep Swinging" is intended as an ode to the growing boy and is derived from the song of the same name by David Bowie.
Douglas Simonson (USA)
Douglas Simonson has been creating fine art of the male nude for over 40 years, and has collectors in 80 countries. He is well known for his depictions of men of color in tropical themes. Originally based in Hawaii, he now makes his home in Mexico.
Ivan Bubentcov (Russia)
The drawings are basically a series of paradise of famous historical subjects in art or masterpieces. It started with St. Sebastian, ordered by a collector. And it seemed to me that many other stories deserve a new look.
Marco Cortese (Italy)
Marco Cortese: architect and photographer. In his photos his daily world blends in with the discovery of Beauty. With his iconic model, Stephan Tobias, he explores the visual potential of his research.
Paul Binnie (USA)
Paul Binnie is a Scottish artist now resident in San Diego, California, whose main interests in art are the male nude, depicted in drawing and oil painting, and Japanese woodblock print. He was classically trained in Edinburgh, Paris and Tokyo, and he has been collected by many museums worldwide including the Met in New York and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
Peter Andres (Switserland)
Peter Andres takes pictures as he wants. Formerly, he has always done what his clients wanted or that he found out what they needed effectively. Now he is free, so he can decide for himself what he wants and in which direction his works should go in their meaning and effect. In other words, he pushes the pixels there where he needs them, means "Digital Painting" or he interacts also in front of the camera.
Ron Griswold (USA)
Ron Griswold sees himself more of a craftsman than a poet, finding creativity and expression in the process of painting. He works with indulgent colors and rich textures. His art has no message, it is painted purely for the sensuality, physical beauty and pleasure expressed in the male form.
Sepp of Vienna (Austria)
Sepp of Vienna comes from the northern part of Lower Austria. He studied graphic design in Vienna at the "Graphische", works also with photography and lives as artist in Vienna.
Stephan Tobias (Germany)
Digital photo art is for Stephan a fascinating medium to playfully examine the relationship between the subject and the object. In his photo series he tries to make personal statement about the relationship between the individual and the world around, as he sees it. As a gay male he tends to put a strong emphasis on the beauty and fragility of the human form and to question how it is perceived and what it means aesthetically.
