Ulorin Vex

Alberto Bevacqua studio presents "Animality", a collection of new and recent works by artist Christiane Shillito.

Christiane Shillito is a woman with many different layers. Widely recognized as veteran fetish and art nude model Ulorin Vex, she is also Malady Charlotina the artist and painter with a BSc (hons) degree in Biology. All three incarnations are reflected in her artworks, which depict beautiful but slightly sinister characters often interacting with some element of nature, whether it be based in reality or part of a more imagined personal mythology.

Her fascination with highly stylized figures and dramatic gestures is influenced by a decade of nude modeling. While many of her paintings use models and adult performers she has worked with or admired during her modeling career, the majority are self portrait pieces depicting various alter-egos engaging in scenarios inspired by her own fetishes, fantasies and personal experiences.
