Painter, illustrator, and sculptor Nigel Kent studied art in Sydney before leaving for England in 1959 to build a career as an artist. Kent’s works feature gay S&M fantasies. Starting in 1978, Kent’s works have been placed in many private collections. His work also appeared in leading S&M magazines such as Drummer, Toy, and Mr. SM. Kent is regarded as one of the most influential artists working in the leather and S&M genre and he spent the last part of his career in Amsterdam.
