Dr. No’s Bond Boy from the CineManArt series

It’s fitting that the first Bond Boy has a scene in a white speedo, and what a CineManArt scene it is. The first on-set Bond boy’s beachwear could be the next memorable James Bond moment.

CineManArt is a series of photomontages, collages and digital art by ArtGraeco that recast characters of mainstream movies, change scenarios and subvert plots. These up-stagings add new dimensions – some solemn, others playful – to the stereotypes, the intolerance and homophobia cinema portrayed for over 100 years of filmmaking.

The CineManArt series by Artgraeco depicts what cinema could be and could have been more of: open, daring, defiant, fair, inclusive.

The homoeroticism here speaks to the subtext of sexual tensions and desires that flow between those of the same gender and the subversive homoerotic imagery in the movies.
