Erotic Art by Charles Shelton 

Charles Wayne Shelton II was born in 1976 in Ashland, Kentucky where he currently resides with his wife, Vanessa. In 2010 his image “Knothole“ was selected by Erotic Signature to represent him as one of the top 200 erotic photographers in the world in its fourth annual collection which was published later in the year.

Charles has exhibit his art at galleries and exhibits across the country and in Europe including “The Dirty Show“ in Detroit, The Art Undressed Touring Exhibit (Miami, New York, Montreal, Chicago, and Los Angeles), The Kentucky Art Speaks Gallery in Louisville, Kentucky and the “Persona Art Festival“ in London. Shelton’s image “Pillbilly” has also been accepted into the permanent collection at the Kinsey Institute Gallery in Bloomington, Indiana.

Charles Shelton considers himself to be extremely socially conscious  and hopes that his best work captures trends, evolution’s of our culture, or at least in his small “Hillbilly-Chic” niche located in the Appalachian Mountains. His involvement with nude photography over the past 12 years has caused him to experience incredible persecution in a community that has historically exhibited signs of being sexually repressive. Despite the ignorant attacks and slander of others he has persisted in bringing  his visions and inspirations into this world.
