Fervent bodies majestically stand against willfully chosen colors that symbolize states of being, moods, rhythms...The canvas for this artist is a window where his subconscious mind illustrates his dreams, fantasies and memories, and where Creation takes place on its own, symbolically, spontaneously. His hands swim through the mysteries of his canvases as his imagination endlessly flows like water.

Although paintings is his concentration, this magnificent deos not limit himself to the expression of one medium. He also creates sculpture, pottery and his exotic, extremely sensual collection of jewelry.

Valy's paintings represent the exotic landscapes of his vividly poetical unconscious. YES, his erotism contains poetry, intense emotion, feelings of loss and abandonment and his own profound love of nature.

One who opens himself to the exploration of his paintings will encounter an endless series of mirrors reflecting symbols of the most basic and deepest patterns of feelings present in human beings.They are images that seem to continuously flash between reality and dream, metaphorically narrating moments of death, birth, sadness, love and passion.

Women of flesh and bones are turned into goddesses who rule in his canvases. They are ecstatic, incandescent and immortal. Multiple eyes in all directions creating a mystical realm where body, mind, and spirit collide.

The depth of sensation transmitted in his painting comes from the sensation felt by Valy himself during the very instant of creation. He transcends this reality, becoming one with his painting. Such a process he calls osmosis, which is a result of a very pure love he feels inside of himself for his art.

Valy is known worldwide and recognized as an artist of caliber throughout major organizations and dignitary circles. As a result of having reached such level of recognizable success in his field, he has been included in the nation's registers 'Who's Who in Executves & Professionals' for appearance in the year 2000 edition.

If we look back at the history of Art, we see the innumerous styles and philosophies that have existed. At the end of each historical period, there was always one artist sensitive enough to create and prophesy the art of the next cycle. At this present, we have arrived at a point where Art screams for a new redefinition. However, there is one artist whose art contains the masters of the past, and the very messages and vision of the future. An artist whose free philosophy is simply his own, whose language of image rests on what is the very essence in humans, the erotic unconscious. His name is Valy, the painter of the future.

New York City, NY (PRWEB) December 16, 2008 -- President-Elect and First Family to receive First Annual Award for his efforts to stop smoking. In response to Tom Brokaw's question about whether he is aware that there is no smoking in the White House, Obama admitted to falling off the wagon during the campaign, but he intends maintain a smoke-free environment in the White House. This prestigious award, created by famous French artist/painter, Philippe Valy, will be bestowed upon President Elect Barack Obama at a date to be announced.

It will be the First Annual Last Butt Awards to be given to selected public officials and celebrities to reward them for making giant efforts to stop smoking as they grapple with the challenges of their office or industry.

MY LAST BUTT... is an International Association founded in 2008. Its purpose is to provide support to smokers wanting to quit smoking, to raise awareness of the detrimental effects of the cigarette by the means of any artistic event such as concerts, plays, street shows, sculptures, paintings or any other activity. It will organize preventive operations with miscellaneous establishments to increase awareness among young people of the influence of cigarette on our lifestyle and health. Most importantly, the Association recognizes the efforts smokers place on quitting and is committed to support them throughout the process, without having to stigmatize, tax or stress the smokers. Many have joined the movement (mylastbutt). There are Associations in the U.S. and in Europe, China and North Africa.

The Board of Directors of the Last Butt Society is committed to providing a new approach to those smokers grappling with giving up smoking, as well as those who stop and start, like President-Elect Obama who admits to falling off the wagon a couple of times. As he said to Tom Brokaw during his interview on Meet the Press on Sunday 7 December 2008, "I have done a terrible job so far, however, I can assure you that there will be no smoking in the White House."

The efforts of the President-Elect and the support of his family in this endeavor have not gone unnoticed.

Opinions are being shared on the pros and cons of smoking and the efforts of the President-elect, as the office and its pressures should allow for him to have a cigarette now and then. "Now that he will become President. everyone should give him permission to start smoking again," Michael Kinsley wrote on the op-ed page of The Washington Post in November. He went on to state that 'another question could be what effect a president desperate for a cigarette and trying to quit might have on his life expectancy. Obama's steely calm is now one of our country's major assets. If he needs an occasional cigarette to preserve it, let's hand him an ashtray, offer him a light and look the other way.'

That might be one way of looking at it. But the Last Butt Society is committed to offering the President-elect something that could remind him of his efforts to stop smoking, a replica of his Last Butt. They are offering him something that could empower him as he faces the overwhelming tasks at hand, while he makes every effort to keep his promise not to smoke in the White House.

President-elect Barack Obama's struggle to kick his habit could "encourage the 43 million adult Americans who smoke to join him in his efforts," says Cheryl Healton, president of the American Legacy Foundation, a Washington-based group that seeks to prevent smoking among young people.

Worldwide, however, tobacco could kill up to a billion people during the 21st century, as cigarette sales soar in poor and middle-income countries even as they drop in wealthier ones, says the World Health Organization. The report, financed by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's foundation, suggests a six-point program for fighting the tobacco industry's influence in the Global Anti-Smoking Project, Mpower.

Given the magnitude of the tasks facing this 44th President of the United States, the Board of Directors of the Last Butt Society agreed unanimously to bestow the First Last Butt Award to President-Elect Obama, and supporting awards to members of the First Family to strengthen their support to the President-Elect. The Last Butt could the first hope of millions who are grappling with quitting smoking around the world.

Robert Blume, Executive Producer of the Prestigious Drama Desk Awards () knows the intricacies of the art involved in designing the Last Butt, "Philippe's My Last Butt is not only an award; it is a unique piece of jewelry, of limited edition, and intricately designed."

Valy remembers, "YES WE CAN, was the mantra of the Obama campaign. I feel that the 44th President's choice of the word CHANGE for his campaign is a motivating force for him to change his smoking habits and quit smoking. After all, his victory is a celebration. So I and the international team of MY LAST BUTT society would like to award a winner. For this we say, Mr President, Yes You Can, welcome to the healthy life again." Philippe Valy ()

Valy asked international singer and songwriter, MARISTELLA, to write a theme song for the Last Buttt. 'Day after Day' is not only honest about the desperation of being a prisoner to the smoking habit, but it is also a reminder of hope and the strength that we all have within us.

"Valy's 'My Last Butt' is an empowering symbol and reward for overcoming a habit that is crippling physically and emotionally. I'm honored that he trusted me to represent it with this song," said Maristella

The Poet-in-Residence of the Last Butt Society, Emgee, has written a poem to this end:

'Ode to the Wagon'

'The campaign trail was quite a ride
Tried to stay on the wagon till the other side
But with bumps and thumps and hills and vales
The wagon derailed, I went off the trail
Got up, got on, a long way away
November 4, will it ever get here
Back on, fell off, back on again
The ride was long, had to take a train
Ditched the wagon, hitched a ride
No more falling off till the other side
And now, no matter what the rut
I am the proud holder of
MY LAST BUTT'

Emgee Poetry, 2008
