antebellum artist~ PALANCA has left us. i called him plancha, (which means iron) as a little nick~name.
plancha was possibly the best foot fetish artist to date. his artworks were featured in antebellum's ~ FOOLS FOR FEET exhibition way back in 2008.
palanca was a sweet man, very creative and original. i have fond memories of him sucking my toes thru an entire dinner party. he only came up for under the dinning table once the entire night.
i know you are in foot heaven dear plancha~ RIP

FEATURED ARTIST: PALANCA. The Foundation recently connected with a wonderful artist out of Peru, whose artist name is PALANCA… He is presently visiting the states, and we have been working with him to assist in pricing his works and looking for ways to expose these wonderful creations to a broader public. -ToFF’s Dispatch, Summer 2001
PALANCA – crudely sexual and delicious. In 2001 Palanca went to Los Angeles where he met the founder and the curator of Tom of Finland Foundation (ToFF). He showed at the Tom of Finland Art Fair, L.A. Pride’s Erotic City and TOM’s Bar. In L.A. he also met filmmaker Chris Maher. In 2007 he was honored with a Special Recognition from ToFF. -TOM’s Blog, April 2014
