About this project

Pleasurines, by Argentine artist Laura Spivak

With your support, my series of pleasure paintings can be translated into small collectible figurine sculptures called Pleasurines. The name comes from a mix of the words pleasure and figurines. The propose of this project is that everybody can have one Pleasurine (or more, of course!). I want Pleasurines in people's homes, not just in Museums or Art Galleries. In their essence, they are very connected with life, so I want them sharing daily life with all of you.

To start I designed six different models, and with your help I will be able to manufacture the first one of them. Anyway, later I want to make a huge community of Pleasurines. Each Pleasurine will measure approximately 10 inches high (or 25 cms.), and will be done with a sturdy composite resin. Of course, they are going to be painted with beautiful colors.

So, Pleasurines is my project, and I need your help to do it and make my dream come true. I am very lucky to be able to make the art I love and with the help of my friends to try and extend that love, through Pleasurines, to a much wider audience. Please, through your pledge, help me spread the joy!
