Jack Noir, otherwise known as "The Blackjack," is on a mission to unearth the deepest mysteries of men themselves. Although he does not identify as homosexual, he works as a male escort, where through physical experience, he believes that he can see male beauty -- "beauty itself," according to Noir -- in its purest state. He is passive in his creativity, often waiting until the other artists have had their say before taking control of Calmes' physical body. Depicting bygone experiences, discoveries, and relationships with men from his past through raw material, Noir's

art is sincere, sensitive, and self-reflective.
