Erotic Art: 11 Instagram Artists with Amazing (And Sexy) Talent

Curated via Twitter from Glamour’s twitter account….

Just look at how the genre has flourished on Instagram: Tons of artists with hundreds of thousands of followers have, for the last few years, been showing their huge audiences new ways to think about love, sex, and intimacy—often at the risk of getting their accounts deleted for being in violation of Instagram's decidedly anti-nipple community guidelines.

We decided to talk to the women behind the profiles, seeking out 11 of the best-known erotica artists on Instagram and asking them about the statements they want to make, the sex art they're creating, and how they're able to showcase it in front of such a big audience without getting their profiles suspended.

If you asked me when I started I would have simply said it comes from my love of lingerie and vintage erotica, which is a small part of it, but really it all stems from obsessively trying to understand intimacy and comprehend sexual power dynamics that never made sense to me.

But I remember needing love and tenderness a lot, and started to consider creating stuff about feelings, in particular loneliness and desire, two concepts that extend past our immediate intimacy and into the realms of fashion, advertising, books and graphic design.

I love putting my emotion into my work and I guess you can say I’m a very sexual person and the taboo around women sexuality was always a trigger for me, we all do it, why not make it normal.

There was extreme judgment, abuse, and misunderstanding combined with extreme support, encouragement, and praise. I accepted it all.  When I first started it was a different social climate than it is now and I think with the global community of social media, women making sexually charged artwork is much more accepted.

In July of 2016, I had around 2,500 followers on Instagram, and then something happened and I suddenly got a lot of likes and new followers and people started to share my profile.

I started following Alpha Channeling on Instagram a few years ago, and I think he was one of the reasons I dared to share my erotic art too.

My first Instagram account was deleted because it violated the Instagram community rules!

Even though I was in some ways unsatisfied with the project, it allowed me to see love as a legitimate focus for my work and cleared the path for my first experiments.

I'm very grateful to have Instagram as a visual portfolio of my work.

But I'm constantly inspired by multiple things: By art I see on Instagram and in books, by photos I see, and by my own feelings, experiences, dreams, and ideas.

I feel that good erotic art is when a painting or drawing touches something in me.
