Marilyn Minter is an American born photographer and painter currently based out of New York. Over the years, Minter has received varying reactions and responses to her works as she combines high-fashion and glamor with pornographic undertones. When she exhibited Porn Grids, a series of paintings based on hard-core pornographic imagery, she was more or less shunned from the art world. It was during the end of the '80s, when few female artists had explored such a taboo subject. Despite the criticism, she continued to build her own narrative, upping the ante with projects like Food Porn, in which she depicted fruits and vegetables in suggestive states. Eventually she created the sensual style of hyper-realistic photographs and paintings she is known for today.

Minter begins her process by staging photoshoots of her subjects using traditional film over digital. She then turns them into paintings created through the layering of enamel paint on aluminum. The last layer is applied with fingertips to create a modeling or softening of the paintbrush lines
