Master printmaker Play Is Soul Food in Sacramento, California
Ugly Food House master printmaker and artist Ivonne Adel- Bureos, A.K.A Play Is Soul Food, performed her first ever live performance at Fin Lei Lei Art Space during a weekend stay in Sacramento, California.
Shortly after arriving in California towards the end of February this year, Play Is Soul Food was invited to create a live printing event for the exciting Lin Fei Fei Art Space which is home to many underground and erotic female artists and designers.
The Play Dirty collection focuses on exposing themes of adulthood: self satisfaction, eroticism, and activities of the sexual nature within ones self & with others.
"Society has created so many walls between the sexes and after living and witnessing the repression of women sexually, all over the world, I created this platform to express, share, learn, and evolve how we all communicate each other. Women's sexuality is still a big taboo in many cultures, and in those cultures and communities, women have been deprived from expressing a vital, natural, and healthy activity.
The lack of sexual education worldwide has to change. Communication and honesty is key for us to evolve as a society. Equality is key to respect and progress within the sexes and within all generations."

During this live performance Play Is Soul Food created a multi-layered, mixed medium body print and drawing, which touches the concept of walking with your angels and demons. The work elevates the importance for adults to remember the fundamentals and necessity of play throughout everyones lives, and how our instinct (inner child) and honesty about our desires, is key for our societies & cultures to evolve in a more united front.
