You've probably seen some of the "spiritual and erotic art" of Ugandan artist Orokie Okoth before. If you haven't, ole Garçon Stupide is here to tell you about. Ain't you lucky?

There's much, much more of Okoth's beautiful art at Afriboy - African Male Erotic Art Gallery. Learn about the artist's origins of here. There's a conversation with Orokie here.

Thank you for exposing us to the arts, this is why I have a crush on you!

It is good to see you mention Orokie and his art. As the author of the interview you mention, I read your post with interest. You obviously like Orokie's work and selected a broad range to show. (I'm not so sure why you refer to Gay Uganda, however, who has little to do with Orokie, apart from using a piece of his work as an avatar!)
Orokie, as you probably know, has been critically ill, and struggles to drawn and keep his eye-sight. It is sad how he has been neglected by his own blog, which is why I appreciate your mentioning of him. He is an artist of considerable talent and humour. Thanks for profiling his work on your versatile blog which always makes for provocative and witty reading!
