David Hurles & John Waters in NYC

Raging hard-ons, sketchy prison tattoos, and junkies, junkies, junkies – they have all been represented in contemporary art, but never like this. David’s work will be on display at one of New York’s most respected galleries, Marianne Boesky The show, Outsider Porn: The Photos of David Hurles, is the brain child of King of Filth, John Waters.

Waters worked closely with David’s friend Dian Hanson, to come up with a truly compelling collection of photographs from his vast portfolio of American street trade. David’s aggressively pornographic images, will now occupy the same space once taken up by the works of such art stars as Takashi Murakami, Liz Craft, and Mr. Waters himself.

David is the most popular resident of a state funded nursing home in East Hollywood. Having suffered a stroke over a year ago, he spends his days in bed, listening to the constant noise of his roommates’ TVs, sleeping and gossiping with his close friend, and de facto caregiver, Dian Hanson.

The place is a dump, really, mere miles from the palace that porn built, but David isn’t altogether bitter. Sure, he’s pissed – understandably so – but if you catch him at the right time, you’ll find him transported to another place in his memory, a place where the rough trade runs free.
