LOS ANGELES, Calif. – November 22nd, 2016 – NU MUSES, the luxurious 2017 fine art nude calendar, is now available to purchase in three unique limited edition collectors packages. Drawing inspiration from the Pirelli calendar of the 1970s, NU MUSES is set to celebrate the forgotten art of the classic nude and capture the elegance and romance of the female form.


The NU MUSES limited edition art piece is a sublime collectable calendar, featuring nude photographs of 12 of the world’s most stunning models, captured by famed photographer David Bellemere.

The 12 NU MUSES featured in the calendar were discovered through an extensive seven-week worldwide model search resulting in an exotic shoot in the Dominican Republic at the exclusive Casa Kimball. This exotic Caribbean location provided a stunning landscape to create timeless images that are immediately captivating, with an innocence and purity that can only be found in nature.

The NU MUSES calendar is a timeless fine art piece. Throughout history, nudity was recognized as the highest form of art, but over time has lost its classic art form. NU MUSES showcases nudity as inspirational and a sign of strength, where women as well as men feel comfortable and empowered viewing the female body.

“This process has been eye opening for everyone on the team. Whenever you aim to redefine something, especially nude art, you are sure to discover passion and pain unfold as you reveal your vision. Step by step we have seen each element of our project fall into place and concluding the calendar portion has been extremely rewarding. Our vision is now in print, we can’t wait to share what we have created and discovered with the world.” – Steve Shaw, publisher

NU MUSES not only transcends time and gender, but it is a global art piece.  The project showcases breathtaking women who represent beauty from around the world; Alejandra Guilmant (Mexico), Anna Wolf (United States), Ariela Oliveira (Brazil), Ebonee Davis (United States), Isabella Boemeke (Brazil), Janine Tugonon (Philippines), Jessica Clements (United States), Keilani Asmus (Holland/Indonesia), Nidhi Sunil (India), Rachel Cook (United States), Sabina Karlsson (Sweden), and Vika Levina (Russia).
