NSFW: Check Out this Strange Erotic Art Found in an Abandoned House

There’s a lot of wild things you kind find in abandoned houses: squatters, ghosts, family heirlooms and… porn? Apparently. Hundreds of porn-tastic, erotic art drawings by enigmatic artist William Crawford were recently found in an abandoned house in Oakland, California. The art and the artist are both a bit of a mystery.

Despite being drawn — they think — in 1997, all the drawings have a definite “70’s porn” vibe to them, look at those mustaches!! Which makes sense because the artist did many of his works while in jail for who knows how long. Cut off from sexual experiences, Crawford created his own, sometimes even on the backs of prison roster sheets. Featuring some wild sex positions and a multitude of naked bodies, the work is distinctly longing albeit dirty as hell. The juxtaposition of light pencil with heavy themes, sexual repression and sexual expression, connectivity and loneliness make the work distinctly moving.

The collection will be on display on October 30th in Los Angeles at the Farago gallery. We wonder if wherever this dude is — dead or alive — if he knows that he’s accidentally becoming an artist.
