Fresh, young, new models are a hallmark of Metart, and they have been from the very start. And Olivian, the Ukrainian 18-year-old who makes her Metart debut in Leonardo’s “Presenting,” is as fresh, young, and new as they come. From the first image (the sweet and demure topless shot featured at the top of this post) to the last (an explicit and tantalizing rear-view) Olivian performs impressively in her first Metart appearance.
In addition to her physical charms, which are considerable, Olivian is simply and sensationally photogenic. A competent artist — and Leonardo is far more accomplished than that — can capture physical details, but if the subject isn’t willing or capable of projecting her personality and emotions, the results can be disappointing. Not Olivian! This young woman radiates an easy confidence. She’s self-assured, unashamed, playful, engaging, and possesses a lively warmth. Looking at her is a treat, to be sure, but it’s her personality that takes these beautiful photographs and fills them with alluring, magnetic, appeal.
I must admit, I was surprised when I discovered that Olivian was only 18 at the time this erotic art photo gallery was shot. Her confidence, her very presence, makes her seem more mature. Some of this perceived sophistication may be due to her styling here, particularly her eye make-up that gives her glittering blue eyes a feline quality. But Olivian’s beauty and the disarming charm she possesses in such abundance make her a truly formidable female presence, particularly in view of her youth.
Leonardo has dressed Olivian in nothing but a pretty pair of pink and white panties. She’s on a bed, and a changing, but unobtrusive, pattern of lights is projected on the wall behind her. The artist captures everything from figure studies to explicit anatomical close-ups (#089 and #094). He also captures several truly beautiful smiles — when Olivian is amused or laughing she’s absolutely radiant (see #020 and #029 for two shining examples). Olivian’s moods are as varied as her poses and Leonardo’s compositions. She’s restrained and calm in #037, she exudes pin-up glamour in #030, explicitly exposed in #067 she remains completely at ease and projects warmth and vitality, and in #099 she’s nothing less than beguilingly beautiful.
