The oppression, indignity, suffering and even death inflicted on our fellow human beings often originates from hate, ignorance and fear. These are the things we must always resist whether it comes from others or from within ourselves.
I will donate* 15% of the sale of this original to Human Rights Watch, a nonprofit, nongovernmental human rights organization working to press for changes in policy and practice that promote human rights and justice around the world. Visit their site to learn more about their efforts to end child marriage in Malawi, 'murderous war on the poor' in the Philippines, torture and execution of gay men in Chechnya among many other endeavors.
*I am not able to provide the customer with a tax write-off for the part of the sale that will be the donation as it's a complicated arrangement that would possibly require a lawyer, accountant, and setting up a separate non-profit entity. If you would like to make donation directly, please visit Human Rights Watch (hrw.org).
For transparency purposes, once it sells I'll post a receipt showing the donation.
Welcome to the art of Michael Breyette.
Michael's pastel paintings capture the stunning beauty of the male form with warmth and sensitivity while never shying away from lustful eroticism.
This website contains fine art depictions of male nudity, gay themes, and men in sensual and romantic situations. Do not enter if you choose to be offended by this subject matter.
Otherwise, if you appreciate the male form in all its glory, come on inside and enjoy!
