Gay male digital artist working since 2007 to depict compelling male faces and physiques using 3D digital tools such as DAZ Studio. The bara genre in which Desouza works is a United States version of the storytelling and artistic style originating in Japan in the 1960s. Bara works are created by gay men intended for a gay adult male audience. This style depicts masculine (not feminized) males usually emphasizing muscles, physical health and strength, and macho men. Bara is distinctive because it depicts gay male, same-sex feelings and sexual identity of masculine, muscular men who sometimes behave in aggressive, violent, or exploitative ways towards one another. This is not about romantic gay love or lovey-dovey hearts and flowers. Bara is wild, adventurous, and unflinching in how it mirrors real life behaviors of male aggression, power trips, violent tendencies, and exploitation.
