This collection will draw upon various drawings and paintings made throughout Tom of Finland’s artist career, integrating them with Carne Bollente's iconic embroideries and prints. This special
collaboration continues to not only reflects our desire to present the artist to new generations but to highlight the humouristic part of his work, a hidden side which was lesser known to the public eye.
As Tom of Finland consistently defended sex-positivity through his art, fighting for LGBTQI+ rights. The artist and activist not only affirmed his own gay sexual identity but glamourised it which
gives significant confidence to gay men at a time when many had internalised homophobia and sexual guilt. Therefore, it is important and also absolute honour to work with Tom of Finland Foundation again.
