The Unfathomable Desire of the Mysterious Apollonia Saintclair (90 Pics)

The female artists who make erotic work, in past and present, are well represented in the genre. But there is one compelling voice working within the sensual ‘idiom’ that is difficult to ignore. The name of this mysterious self-taught artist, whose ambiguous black-and-white universe we, the viewer get sucked into, is Apollonia Saintclair. She chose this pseudonym to separate her personal life from her public life, as she considers privacy one of the last true luxuries.

Instant Sensation

Since 2012, when Saintclair’s work appeared for the first time on the World Wide Web (mainly Tumblr and Instagram before censorship), it was an instant sensation. Before, she still worked analog and mainly for herself but from that moment on she started to use the digital medium for an ever increasing audience. Despite the step to this new medium she tries to keep the look and feel from Indian ink engravings, that she fancies a lot. Her use of ink is often, strongly, incited to define even more explicitly the sensual tension assumed in those pictorial images.

Imaginative Filter

Saintclair’s sensual fantasies are presented from a realistic perspective, but observed through a imaginative filter. The depicted women are not an object of male desire, but mostly of herself. Aside from the astonishing intricacy and detail in her work, the pure artistry with which she creates her art in pictorial, neo-noir, amazingly inventive ways, is that she captures the significance of what sexuality means for each of us.

Influences

In an earlier interview Saintclaire describes herself as an omnivore, her influences range from classic European comic including artists like Milo Manara, Moebius, Guido Crepax, Stefano Tamburini, Paolo Eleuteri Serpieri and Enki Bilal. She is also very fond of the pulp fantasies of Virgil Finlay, the Art Nouveau of Aubrey Beardsley and Gustav Klimt, and of course classic masters like Caravaggio and Leonardo da Vinci. There is also a strong affinity with early surrealism, literature and cinema.

Ink Is My Blood

Due to Saintclaire’s popularity on Instagram (125,000+ followers by 2017) and the limitations of the small computer and phone screen, in particular because her illustrations became more complicated, she and her publisher started a crowdfunding project on Ululu in 2017 to create her work in book form entitled ‘Ink Is My Blood‘.  Over the years four volumes were published.
