He was born in Belarus, a small country bordering Russia and Poland, but Artem Shcherbakov made a move to the US when he was 12. Lean, dark-haired, and green-eyed, he still carries a trace of a Russian accent, though he is an official citizen and has lived in New York for years. While he’s been dabbling as a model since he was 17, treating the camera to a set of pouty lips and wide eyes, and has done just a hint of acting, his regular gig comes in the form of bartending, working in such established icons as Albatross in Astoria, the self-proclaimed oldest gay bar in Queens. He’s even been profiled in Get Out!, a magazine devoted to New York’s gay and gay-friendly spots. He shared, “I think I’m a wonderful bartender. I get a lot of compliments, so I’m assuming people enjoy me.” If you can’t get to NYC to personally bask in Artem’s hotness, you can look for him in a small role as Vlad in the indie comedy film A Four Letter Word (2007). Better yet, seek out the short film Sun in My Mouth (2010), aka Sun in My Heart. In this experimental (artsy) flick, Artem calls a phone sex operator, and talks about his past sex life, and his sexual identity. Whilst on the phone, he strips down to nothing, takes his cock into palm, and brings himself to orgasm with one hand, the other still on his phone. It’s three minutes and 58 seconds of rub and tug, clenched thighs, and bursts of pleasured exhales. He also goes to the beach and gets naked there, too. Thank you for coming to America, Artem.
