THE BEST ACCOUNTS FOR EROTIC ART ON INSTAGRAM – PART II

Need more sexual and sensual inspiration? Here is the second part of our favorite erotic art accounts on the social platform that we are all addicted to…our dear Instagram. Well guess what, these artists and their drawings won’t help with your addiction. On the contrary: beware, very addictive content coming up! Here are our five other artists we asked about their daily inspiration and what they think about Instagram’s censorship.

TINA MARIA ELENA

When you visit Tina Maria’s Instagram your are instantly amazed by those joyful and passionate colors she uses in her watercolors. The Denmark based artist gives that sensual and almost spiritual touch to her paintings. The pictured couples seem to share a whole universe through the sexual act that is reflected in the colors she uses to depict them. Let those colors invade your dreams of love!

What made you want to draw erotic pictures in the first place? How did it all start?

I started my “Make Love” series in November 2015. I felt empowered by the theme and I still feel there’s a beautiful life-force in this erotic and sensual theme. I find it important that my work is delicate and not vulgar.

Who inspires you when you draw/paint?

I’m inspired by many things, but I’m mostly inspired by my own imagination mixed with pictures I find or have.

How has Instagram changed the way you work?

Instagram has changed me in the way that I always strive to create something really good. Not just mediocre.

What do you think about Instagram’s censorship? Does it affect your work and if so, how?

I think that it’s a problem that women are not allowed to show their nipples. I don’t find nipples offensive – not in real life nor in paintings. It’s a problem that people can report anything – both paintings and photographs. I don’t think that art should ever be deleted by Instagram.

Would you consider your art as feminist or sexually positive for women? What does the word feminist mean to you?

The word “Feminist” to me means that you’re supporting the fact that women should have equal rights and opportunities as men. Therefore I consider myself to be a feminist, yes! My art is about allowing women to feel sexual and free to express their sexuality without having to be shamed by men, other women or society.

THI.DE

From Paris with love: Thibault draws all the beautiful girls of Instagram as a hobby in his free time when he is done with all the work at the office. Drawing these thin black lines helps him wander off to some other world of modern erotic inspiration in the Instagram era. Have a look at his drawings for some fresh and stylish kinky inspiration!

What made you want to draw erotic pictures in the first place? How did it all start?

In theory the inspiration comes from Instagram itself. Like most of us I am in contact with images all day, everyday, and that’s where my inspiration starts: I redesign a picture I’ve seen a million times, in a minimalistic way. That being said, my kind of drawings have also been seen again and again. I do not claim to invent something very special, I would say that these drawings are actually mainly a loop-hole at night to clear my head, it’s my own anti-stress coloring so to speak.

Who inspires you when you draw/paint?

I didn’t really choose to do erotic drawings in the first place. I just started drawing portraits and over time I started drawing girls with less clothes on to finally creating erotic pictures. This transition happened naturally from seeing so much erotic art on Instagram.

How has Instagram changed the way you work?

My work comes directly from Instagram. The platform didn’t change the way I work, it actually inspired me to draw in the first place.

What do you think about Instagram’s censorship? Does it affect your work and if so how?

Instagram’s censorship doesn’t affect me so much. A few of my drawings were censored and deleted but to me that’s part of the game: same as everywhere, there are rules. I try to abide by them or disobey those rules when I want to.

Would you consider your art as feminist or sexually positive for women? What does the word feminist mean to you?

I’m not sure I consider my art to be feminist or sexually positive for women: my illustrations are for everyone out there. Anyone can just let their imagination play and wander, let people identify themselves with what I draw, get horny… These drawings are inspired by images on Instagram where girls are not afraid to get undressed and claim female pleasure and sexuality that shows a will to emancipate. A real sexual revolution is probably one of the ideas I have of feminism.

Y.S.S.A

Yssa’s lines reveal the most intimate expression on the characters features while enjoying the sexual act. Half opened lips, closed eyes, bitten lip or revealing some teeth: these details add to the realness of the Portuguese artist’s drawings. Her love-making scenes are drawn in a coloring book kind of way, inviting the viewer to add some personal nuances according to his or her own sensual fantasies.

What made you want to draw erotic pictures in the first place? How did it all start?

It all started when I was standing at the airport and staring at a display full of coloring books for adults, some even labelled “art therapy”. I asked myself in what sense are flowers and mandalas specifically “for adults” and how could I push it further? That’s when I started producing adult art dealing with sexuality for coloring in, which explains the line art. And if it’s called “sexuality therapy” someday, I’d be happy!

Who inspires you when you draw/paint?

The sources of inspirations are vast, just to name a few: Erika Lust’s work, also the work of Am Montoya, Pol Austi, Carlota Guerero, Keffer, Yoshikazu Aizawa…

How has Instagram changed the way you work?

Instagram changed my focus since I started with the idea of producing and spreading content for an adult coloring book. But then I ended up having such a strong and supportive following that it surpassed the initial idea of a simple book – still looking for an editor though!

What do you think about Instagram’s censorship? Does it affect your work and if so, how?

I honestly think that Instagram’s censorship is random and aggravating. It affects my work since my account was completely deleted a year ago – no warning, no answer to my many emails, no explanation. That’s when I knew I was onto something and I started again from scratch, but this time I decided to self-censor my art a little bit here and there with little tricks.

Would you consider your art as feminist or sexually positive for women? What does the word feminist mean to you?

Yes and yes. I like to depict situations where women AND men reveal their body’s sensuality equally and I refuse to draw things that go against the rules of consent. We should all learn to ask for what we want when it comes to sexuality and if my art helps some enjoy themselves more deeply, then I’m happy. A feminist, for me, is a person who doesn’t deny her/his feminine body and mind; a person who engages ethically and safely in society and sexuality.

 

 

PETITES LUXURES

Petites Luxures is the master of sexy puns combined with cheeky illustrations playing with words and situations. The French artist always surprises with his very simple lines that reveal the suggestive action taking place but always with a witty twist. His sultry drawings remind us that sex should always be fun and easy, so get out there and be merry!

What made you want to draw erotic pictures in the first place? How did it all start?

I really don’t know, I always drew, but not necessarily erotic pictures. One day, back in 2014, I was ill in bed and started drawing small erotic pictures. I found this quite funny to do and inspiring, so I decided to continue to see what could happen.

Who inspires you when you draw/paint?

My lover, of course, but also almost anything in life. Music, colors or words inspire me to create erotic drawings. What I do, is try to let my imagination wander off from the starting point of an ordinary word or object.

How has Instagram changed the way you work?

Well, without Instagram nothing would have happened, no one would have seen my drawings. It also helped me to work quick: if I wanted to post a new drawing everyday, I had to find a simple and quick process – drawing with ink on paper, quick shoot with a camera, levels on photoshop and post.

What do you think about Instagram’s censorship? Does it affect your work and if so how?

Well, it frightens me a bit, of course, because if Instagram deletes my account, I loose everything. I recently read that Facebook guidelines accept nudity and sexual representations, as long as they are part of an handmade artwork, no digital. So I should be safe, since all my drawings are made with a pen on paper…

Would you consider your art as feminist or sexually positive for women? What does the word feminist mean to you?

People tell me that my work is feminist, yes, although I never thought to launch a feminist project at the beginning. But women’s freedom, positive thinking and empowerment are naturally a big part of my view of sexuality, so I hope my work is sexually positive for women, of course! I think the word “feminism” should not exist: I wish we didn’t have to defend some human beings just because they have no dicks!
