The Art of Giggles

Maxx Jiggles was born in Sarasota, Florida in 1976 and there is an almost fairy-tale quality to his story. As a creative trapped in the world of banking, Jiggles often painted images on vouchers and newspapers. Hence art was the outlet he used to escape, even through his teenage years and early twenties when he was PHD Candidate in Economics. Maxx has explored many media including watercolor, pen and ink, serigraphy, lithography, acrylic, and even finger paint.

In 2021, Jiggles moved to Miami to emerge as an international artist. The current exhibition is the result of a constant and devoted artistic practice which mixes his biggest passions: money, porn, and art. In a recent interview with CNN entitled "Jiggles in Miami: The Art Process" the painter, who is also a DJ, was asked if his favorite porn was "some of the top porn filmed in South Florida." Maxx replies, "I always loved to say, 'Who doesn't know porn?' " As the title suggests, porn is the medium of discovery, a discovery of art. I've loved the porn industry long before being an artist." 

For Jiggles, porn has it all: sex, entertainment, money, and power. It mirrors our society, so it is corrupt. "My mom told me that if I was a big fan of porn and I should show them how good they are. There are more porn movies on the web than regular films and I'm sure many of the porn lovers don't think porn is real or really bad. I get so many requests from girls with stories. I just want to share them all".

Guys in the industry, like me, are great people, but sometimes people think we shouldn't say what we think. We have sex and then we're not going to go all the way. It's a very sexist attitude to say you can't post anything on a website, but what's the point of doing a show to talk about what actually makes porn tick? I like to see porn just keep spreading in general. When we talk about something we think is real and beautiful, we don't talk about porn being porn. So if we think we can just stay up all night watching it, the world is probably going to be a far better place next time. But we still need to think about it. If there are people who love it, they'll enjoy it. What else can you do, that's how the world works".
