Artist Biography

The But I Like It artistic practice has existed since 2007 and has since captured over a hundred men – in portrait, physique, narrative and erotic photographic form.

In addition Johann D’Nale curates works from others and shares/publishes this via a number of channels as well as operates as a subversive artist’s model – in a non-open approach which aims to control and influence how his image is recorded and shared while enhancing the works he is featuring in.
