Velvet Other World’s ‘Bimboteque’ Art Show Explores the Bimbo Aesthetic

“Contemporary bimbo culture embraces queerness, hyperfemininity and hypermasculinity. Bimbofication can be a process of discovering a self that’s not for others.”

Artist duo Velvet Other World, comprised of creatives Katrina Pisetti and Josh Allen, reveals its Bimboteque art exhibition.

Now hosted at New York City‘s contemporary art gallery, Kapp KappBimboteque is a two part summer art show featuring the duo’s signature greyscale aesthetic. Currently on display, Chapter I is held within a blackbox theater and taps the essence of BDSM through a “dramatized setting with specially designed lighting, curtains, floral arrangements and props alluding,” to kinky culture. The first installment, on display until July 8, features “ten new oil on canvas paintings that reflect the artists’ desire to perfect the ornate exteriors of their figures,” the exclusive press release revealed.

Each of the 10 new paintings on display result from Velvet Other World’s exploration of bimbo culture. The duo regards the bimbo aesthetic as “the peak of aesthetic transformation, looking to bimbofication as the purest manifestation of sexual futurism.” According to Pisetti and Allen, ”Contemporary bimbo culture embraces queerness, hyperfemininity and hypermasculinity. Bimbofication can be a process of discovering a self that’s not for others.”

Velvet Other World began collaborating on charcoal art in 2021 as a “study of costume, opulence and the figure within an enchanting black-and-white universe,” it shared. The artists initially met while receiving their BFAs at the Rhode Island School of Design and have since embarked on a journey of understanding “the human relationship with the body,” as well as depicting “grandeur, royalty, drama and luxury within their fairytale-like narratives.”

Visit Bimboteque: Part 1 at the Kapp Kapp gallery until July 8, with the mystique of chapter two revealed July 14 to August 5.
